Pas de Deux #2 – Second Skin Second Sky

The final part of the New Empathies series at radialsystem will be launched by the premiere of the performance Pas de deux #2 – Second Skin Second Sky, in which violinist and performer Mari Sawada and dancer and choreographer Nitsan Margaliot will enter the ‘Stage of Two’.

As society continues to drift further apart, the concept of empathy is currently experiencing a renaissance. The ability to empathize is regarded as the central tool with which to fight the rage exerted against the supposed Other, yet it is also seen as the danger inherent in sentimental depoliticization. In June 2019, radialsystem launched New Empathies, a series of programmes spanning two years, consisting of concerts, installations, choreographies, workshops, and discussions.
