THE STATUS QUO
Coalition is an exploration of motion as expression of individuality and the struggle against oppressive societies. It is an immersive live experience that represent the union of motion and sound conveying individuality and uniqueness against the status quo of society.
We see motion as a form of expression, which conveys individuality and emotions. When placed in the context of its environment, this uniqueness and diversity will often be met with resistance, as society as a whole prefers to maintain the status quo.
This oppression has long-lasting direct and side effects on communities and is ever-present in our times. As individuals, we are powerless against society. As we unite, we aim for the common good.
