RE:connect (2016) by Julia Mermelstein

For baritone saxophone and electronics.

Composed for collaborative dance piece choreographed by Sarah Hopkin for solo dancer.

Performed by Kathleen Legassick and Olivia Shortt.

Premiered on May 1, 2016 at Dancemakers Theatre, Toronto.

RE:connect explores our dependence on technology and the epidemic of loneliness it has caused. The depth of the connections we make to other humans is now often sacrificed for the quantity of connections we make. We feel the need to constantly be connected and share our experiences in order to feel that we are not alone, but in the process we have forgotten how to connect with ourselves. If we do not learn how to be alone, we will be forever lonely.
