The performance questions how we present ourselves in the digital realm, exploring avatars and metaverses as essential aspects of our future society. This piece uses digital media to foster self-expression and community formation, departing from traditional forms of representation. Drawing on Gilbert Simondon's theory of transindividualims, „ O cea n fli g ht “ combines motion tracking and gaming software to create an interconnected dance performance. The transdiciplinary team invites viewers to reflect on the transformative power of digital self-expression and its impact on our identities.
