25 Feet

0At a distance of 25 feet (7.3m) and further people interact among each other mainly as viewers and performers. By placing the audience together with two performers in a square of 25ft2, everyone – willingly or not – enters each others ‘social space’. From there begins the journey closer and closer, into ‘personal’ and ‘intimate space’: areas where the most violent and intimate physical interactions happen.

25 Feet is a sober, effectively designed, interactive dance performance about physical proximity and the dynamics between violence and intimacy, that both happen on closest distance.
