RCO is a relational choreographic performance, in which the choreography evolves entirely according to the embodied behavior of the audience as well as their participation in the invitations of the performers and the instructions sent on their mobile phones. The audience, according to their desires, activate rules that they discover during the show.
The intention of the artists is to question the active place that human beings can take in the creative act and their enriched perception of their own way of moving, in the public space.
The proposed work explores the idea of how a collective story emerges from the individual narrative. We choreograph the relationship of the performer to the public, the public to the public and the public to the mobile phones. We question the relationship of the public to their own body and to their mobile phone, this interactive ubiquitous, addictive and perhaps repressive medium of everyday life.
