How can we really encounter another person, enter into dialogue, interact, listen to one another, engage with and be touched by people we don’t know?
Sketch of Togetherness is a series of performances by Lea Moro developed to examine the physical, social, personal and emotional qualities of an encounter between two people. Accompanied by a camera, Lea Moro (or another choreographer/performer in her place) will spend a day together with a guest. The focus will be on their togetherness and the possibilities of their encounter will be put to the test. Subsequently, their reunion takes place in the presence of an audience. The Sketch or draft of their being together is created from the aggregated material of memory, video and sound as well as from an individual ‹score›. Resonances and spaces of reflection open up, and the possibilities of togetherness are negotiated.
The individual encounters provide insights into different realities and daily lives as well as different professional worlds, individual biographies and diverse cultural, political and social contexts. In any case, every encounter with an unfamiliar person also reveals one's own perspective.
As part of the serial project Sketch of Togetherness, an archive is created, which will document the individual Sketches and provides further background material.
