Slow Dance

Slow Dance is a participatory performance project, which explores urban alienation, loneliness and intimacy with strangers in the digital era. The artist and facilitators invite the passerby and the audience to slow dance with them to the naturally occurring soundscape of the surrounding environment. Performed in various locations, including streets, parks, hotels, art fairs and galleries, Slow Dance highlights our estranged everyday.
