What is free will in a highly technological society?
New Religion is a science fiction contemporary dance performance where five dancers drift inside a four-meter-tall labyrinth that dictates where the body moves.
It is a chilling, dystopian performance where technology’s omnipresence creates a godlike authority, challenging the concept of free will. The line between fiction and reality is blurred, appealing to your sense of urgency.
