In this live interactive online performance, Joy Alpuerto Ritter and Lukas Steltner invite the audience into their home during moments of isolation, doubts, boredom, and joy.

Via laptops and mobile devices, new technologies are finding their way into our homes. During the current pandemic and lockdown, they become our tool for communication with the outer world. Reversely, via Zoom, Skype conferences, and Instagram Stories we increasingly invite people we barely know into the intimacy of our four walls. 

In this interactive performance film, Joy and Lukas try to find a creative way to deal with the extraordinary situation we have found ourselves in. 

Duration: 30 mins

"rOOms from Joy Alpuerto Ritter and Lukas Steltner offered some hope for a new way of performing. Live-streamed with multiple cameras (some of them camera phones, wielded with artistry) in different rooms of the performers’ homes, the work employed audience feedback in the form of polls to determine how the narrative would unfold, a kind of choose your own adventure model that also connected the performers with their audience." - Dance International Magazine
