“Until January 2019, we were being prepared for Cyborgs bodies, A.I.s, Transhumanistic ideas. I was concerned about Technology and Digitalised Bodies would take over performance art and slowly our spots on the stage. And March 2020; here we are, teaching each other how to wash our hands meanwhile our bodies and creativity being imprisoned on i-pad screens of our audience. What kind of a Time- Machine are we in?”
