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 film installation about utopian working conditions in dance. About Aliens on Earth. About adaptation and the way we work together. Viewing our experiences through alien eyes in order to see clearly the past and effect the future.
