Eleven attempts to understand why

By Jim De Block, Arika Yamada, Waldean Nelson and Dorotea Saykaly

“Eleven attempts to understand why” is a dance/theatre piece we made for Frilagret in Gothenburg. For the piece we started exploring the concepts of conflict and empathy, and used these conversations to build the narrative of the piece.

In particular, we were fascinated by the medical condition of Mirror-touch synesthesia. This is a rare condition which causes individuals to experience a similar sensation in the same part or opposite part of the body (such as touch) that another person feels.
