-The World of Social Media-
"Double Knots" is a contemporary dance performance that portrays the social media world.
We meet people on social media without seeing each other's faces.
Sometimes the connection gets more profound than the real friends.
Sometimes we hurt others' feelings unintentionally.
This time, four contemporary dancers perform the tangled peoples' connection on social media in a glass-in space.
How it looks if we can actually see the world of social media?
