shapes of togetherness
Tomorrow’s Islands is an installation-performance about movement, connection, and attention. Using land reclamation as a subject, the work treats the migration and compaction of sand as a metaphor for the displacement and reconstitution of community, reflecting on the potential and challenges of communality amidst congregation. How, if at all, does physical proximity translate into emotional connection? How does a place become a home? What risks do we take in being vulnerable? And when coming together is too difficult, what possibilities for solitude remain?
