Plasma investigates how our individuality is constrained and shaped by shared social conventions and how it can be liberated in the frantic modern world. Using abstract movement and interaction between dancers Plasma explore how one can express individuality positively, without destroying important social structures. Plasma explores how people are often alienated from their true values, because of the pressure exerted on them to conform to social norms. We focus on researching and interpreting the external pressures that drive individual and social actions and the means that are used to enhance performance, for example, in sports, business, and healthcare. What positive and negative effects pressure can have in an ever changing and increasingly demanding society, we will explore through dance and multimedia.
