Collectron connected on the 17th July 2021 visitors of the KoresponDance Festival at the castle in Žďár nad Sázavou, CZ and inhabitants of Pata Rat community in Cluj-Napoca in Romania. The event initiated the unexpected dance encounters of diverse inhabitants of our planet who are separated by distance and social context.
The Collectron is an artistically imagined device located at the fringes of the world we physically inhabit. It is a circular venue without physical substance that builds on a tradition of the ancient amphitheatres or Shakespeare’s Globe.
