Tech it Away

Premiere // September 2016

Tech it Away –  is dedicated to all those who have embarked on an adventure in an urban environment, to those who have analyzed humans as tribes, to those who examine the human body as a material. This sixth work of Elad Schechter for the C.A.T.A.M.O.N dance group is a voyage into the space between the human body and the material world. The search for shared enjoyment in an automatic world.
