The video performance SECOND BODY by SHIBUI KOLLEKTIV deals with the consequences of social isolation and loneliness of an older generation 65+ in times of the pandemic. It gives insights into personal experiences about the forced loneliness and distance of physical closeness and touch and the resulting longing for the intimacy of interpersonal closeness.
SECOND BODY explores the relationship between closeness and distance and examines the ambivalence and possibilities of how contacts and interpersonal contacts can arise. Can a touch also be created without physical proximity? Do imitations or textile covers offer an alternative to enable physical closeness to be experienced?
SECOND BODY sees itself as a research project and performance and was developed in encounters with amateur dancers and professional dancers.
