In this work, I-Fen Lin (Lucerne, CH) and Ming Poon (Berlin, Germany) put the power of the collective body to the test in a dance performance setting. They create a space where the audience’s participation, or the lack thereof, has direct consequences. In this performance, the audience become collaborators, who can directly influence the development of the dance choreography that happens on stage. They are given the power to create the dance performance that they want to see. Will they make it or will they break it?
"We are all in this together" takes the audience’s collective body as its central theme and explores the political potential that lies within an individual's agency to change the collective outcome.
