Lonely in the Rain | Thibault Monnier: Hollowed Be Thy Name
Hollowed Be Thy Name is a duet choreography by Thibault Monnier. This piece explores social anxiety in our modern times.
What if for some time, perhaps 35 minutes, perhaps more, two souls encounter, two souls are reunited. They know everything about each other and yet have forgotten everything about their distant yet so close common past. Her sound, his touch, her grip, his taste. Far away from their modern world they get one last chance to morph into one before it is too late, before their inevitable destiny separates them forever. The rawness of life slowly creeps up on their relationship.
Hollowed Be Thy Name is a duet choreography by Thibault Monnier. This piece explores social anxiety in our modern times. How can it be that we are so disconnected from one another and yet constantly connected to some-thing or some-one. Our modern consumerism and capitalistic way of living wants to blind us into believing that mankind is still a social species, when the social part of it is slowly dying.
