London, June 2019_
Encounters is an invitation to play, explore and feel. A participatory video installation that aims to empower audiences to actively interact with the community they live in.
Audiences are assigned a personal space and are encouraged to explore the notion of separation, establish a dialogue with each other using their hands to communicate through the sense of touch and movement. This live interaction is projected into the installation space and accompanied by live music composed while following the hand's movements, which enhances the performative experience.
Encounters maintain participants at the centre of the action encouraging new ways to actively interact with other human beings and promoting social inclusion.
The most authentic Encounter happens when you least expect it, just be in the moment and enjoy!
