New People (⋏⟒⍙ ⌿⟒⍜⌿⌰⟒) and especially Aliens have a hard time everywhere in the galaxy. People find them disturbing. Irritating. They simply don’t belong. You don’t want them. Or only if they adapt.
New People 1.0 is a low-fi sci-fi installation without dance about adaptation and the way we work together in dance. How can you change something if the others just carry on doing it the way they have always done it?
