Addicted to any mobile devices or maybe know others who are? If so, Wen-Jen Huang's restlessly swift, hot-wired dance quartet should produce jolts of recognition. Her dynamic new work is based upon the contemporary socio-cultural phenomenon of phubbing (paying more attention to one's mobile, etc. than to the people you're with).

Reality jostles and juts up against tyrannical virtual reality in a stripped-down, heads-down examination of the great global disconnect. Guided by the choreographer's laser-like kinetic intelligence, the dancers slice and slide through space with a desperate, unpredictable energy.

Fair warning: their self-absorbed, pressure-cooked state of being could be both exciting and distressing. Who are these glassy-eyed beings? They are us!

European premiere.
