How does violence take place despite physical distance? Why do we lose our inhibitions so easily in the anonymity of the virtual space? And what does actually happen to our human body through all the sitting in front of a screen? Inspired by leaked videos from drone cockpits, intrusive comments in social media chat rooms as well as the countless hours in front of the computer in COVID marked 2020 this performance invites you to a 1:1 encounter with an anonymous entity behind a screen. Is there a change to (re-)connect between each other and to develop empathy despite the physical absence of the other?
