“There are eyes everywhere. No blind spot left. What shall we dream of when everything becomes visible? We'll dream of being blind.”
Blindly we walk through our GoogleMaps-world and believe that Siri tells us the truth. Citycentres are filled with securitycams that check if we move in the right direction. Everything that we cannot decipher is non-existing. Science, technology and measurability are the new truth. Maybe the new religion.
In Siri Loves Me choreographer Katja Heitmann imagines the way technology influences our world. Will the future generations - in these times of Siri, googlemaps and securitycams - still be able to choose their own path? Can they still move freely?
Fifty youngsters execute a ritual in the most concentrated way possible. Together they walk a cathastrophical line and become an island of serenity in the epicentre of the cityrumble.
Siri Loves Me is performed by students of the Pre-education Dance Dans Maastricht, Fontys Dance Academy and Tanzhaus NRW.

"(...) their serene silence in gaze and movement draws your attention. (...) Their rhythm deviates from that of the shopping-street. But moving as a group they change the tempo of the world around them."

"(...) It is a breathtaking piece of indigo-children that everybody just hás to experience."
