Relative Distance

Research output: Artistic and non-textual formPerformanceSolo art productionpeer-review


As part of a long term collaboration, the artist Einat Amir and the social psychologist Yossi Hasson had created a participatory performance combined with real-time psychological research. The project will consist of one-on-one performative meetings between performers and audience members, through an online platform.

During the time of COVID 19 crisis, people around the world are facing common but also different challenges. In this meeting those challenges will be shared in an artistic – performative perspective. This project contains a mix of questions and actions that challenge the audience, both visually and emotionally, with confronting our own identities and sense of belonging. The data collected from the audience will be processed as a new research in the context of intergroup relationships.

The performance will deal with challenging subjects, but will also use humor and performative techniques to create an elevating experience of intimacy and solidarity. The online communication platform will provide the opportunity of a meeting between performers and audience from two different sides of the world, creating a unique moment of closeness in a time of distance.
