Choreography: Heidi Strauss
on air is a physical performance conversation between three women who delicately, forcibly, and collectively ruminate on the complexities of human connection in the digital age, generational difference, and the state of being in-between. It wraps the audience and performers together in an intimate suspended world to experience elasticity of time, passages between points of arrival and departure. In Heidi Strauss’ works, relationships form a basis to consider our current social and environmental moment. She is interested in the ‘realness’ of where and who we are, here and now – how we are affected by the world around us.
