About the piece:
How does our body play a role in how we experience the world around us? This is the core question to the work of choreographer Loïc Perela. With HASHTAG, Loïc explores the boundaries between watching, engaging and losing yourself in something. He intertwines virtual images and daily reality and plays with our perception of distance: between human and digital display, performer and audience, mind and body.
With the concept for HASHTAG Loïc Perela won the prize of the Dutch Dance Festival in 2015.
“With HASHTAG Loïc Perela celebrates and honours the strength and vulnerability of the body and invites the audience to experience this themselves.” The jury of the Dutch Dance Festival
