Tortelli‘s "engaging work (…) begs to be seen live, in order to experience even more the intensity and power
that flows between these extraordinary artists.”
Alison Kent for Dance Europe
How do we create our own USER ID in the constant online? And what influences does this have on our life offline? Does this offline still exists or do we have to speak of augmented reality because the cell phone seems to have become part of the body?
In his dance piece “Snow Crash” Diego Tortelli explores the question of how the Homo Digitalis outlines its identity and whether this still exists in the literal sense. For this purpose, he contrasts the dancers Dominic Santia, Casia Vengoechea and Corey Scott-Gilbert with the video works of video designer Lea Heutelbeck as teammates and opponents.
