A dance performance without dancers, where the audience takes the active role. Before it begins, everyone is given headphones – and steps onstage. Each participant is greeted by a voice that says: “Are you ready? Shall we start? Let’s play!” A spirited collaboration is set in motion, a choreographic collective negotiating proximity and distance. “AutoPlay” is perhaps the sole pleasurable experience to be born of the pandemic – for without the constraints imposed by the hygiene regulations, this dance performance would never have come into being. Our conclusion: you are far and away the best dancers!
