The world is experiencing an incredible technological advancement. These developments are meant to make our lives easier, faster and more efficient. However, these advances do not only shape the system itself but also how we, as a society, live in it. We are constantly trying to adapt, wanting as well to be faster and more efficient. The consequence is a consistent internal struggle boiling inside our bodies.

Boiling Cold takes a look into the near future. Two dancers are passing/moving through two different settings while exploring human encounters such as distance, closeness, playfulness and efficiency; A shared search for the future and a study on the fragile beauty of human interaction in a digital world. This touching duet abstractly explores themes of interaction, communication, efficiency, substitution and the role of emotion in a digital era. Communication today is more accessible then ever. The question is; are we succeeding to connect?
