The site-specific durational performance Where are you now? choreography is based on the observation of people with mobile phones in public space.
By repeating hundreds of times the necessary movements to interact with their devices, the performers begin to show similarities with the devices themselves.
Set in public places, the scene becomes a mirror that reflects the behavior of people in that same space.
