Guo/Løhre/Schmidt: Quantum Entanglement

13 – 14 June 2020

How is social distancing affecting us as humans?

“Quantum entanglement” is the physical phenomenon that occurs when a pair or group of particles can be described as a unit that share the same condition, even when the particles are separated by a large distance. Einstein referred to this phenomenon as “spooky action at a distance”.
In times of isolation, Quantum Entanglement explores how we can create unity, connectedness, and interaction, despite the physical distance between us. In their own isolated world, with an increasing sense of anxiety and loneliness, two dancers and a musician seek outwards, longing for connection.

Quantum Entanglement takes place at Babel visningsrom for kunst. The audience views the performance from outside.

June 13th 19.00 – 20.00
June 14th 14.00 – 15.00
