With ALONE TOGETHER, Swiss performance artist Anna Anderegg investigates our social behavior in digital spaces – in the analog space of the DAZ, she makes it tangible in the form of a performance and a film. Anderegg plays with cognitive proximity and physical distance in real and virtual space. After all, functions and routines have increasingly shifted from the analog to the digital world, which changes our physical relationship to space and the digital architecture of our coexistence.

The PERFORMANCE is designed as a five-hour loop structure, each loop lasting approximately one hour and repeating in different variations. Five dancers move with their smartphones and laptops through a space-creating architecture of fragile frames, light and shadow. With their movements they form network spaces through which the audience can freely pass. Thus, they form network spaces through which the audience is free to wander; the boundaries between virtual and physical identity, between performance and audience, melt away. Together with the film work, ALONE TOGETHER distributes itself expansively throughout the two large halls at DAZ.

In the FILM, physical loneliness is broken by a stream of search images that rush across the smooth surfaces of digital media in an urban atmosphere. In contrast, in the performance, physical movement condenses into the endless. By decelerating movements, it challenges our often short attention span.

In 2021 Anderegg was invited to develop the Swiss Pavilion at the Gwangju Art Biennale (South Korea), for this occasion she produced the performance ALONE TOGETHER and the short film of the same name.

ANNA ANDEREGG studied dance in Bern, Montpellier and Berlin. Her work is based on the dialogue between the human body and its urban space while capturing current social and architectural issues physically and makes them comprehensible and tangible for the audience. In 2013 she won the June Johnson Dance Prize (Swiss dance awards) as well as the Kultur- und Kreativpilot*innen Deutschland, an annual award by the German government. In 2016 she was the recipient of a six-month research fellowship in New York. Her work has been shown in various cities in Europe, Asia and North America.

With ALONE TOGETHER, the DAZ continues its collaboration with Anna Anderegg which began in 2015 by showcasing her work STILL MOTION.
