Facing cities started with gathering artist from the two far ends of the world with different backgrounds and practices. They want to find common ground by making a portal that connects people. It's also like making a magic mirror that reflects the world.
Facing cities is a collaboration on finding the common ground as human beings.
A common ground in the digitalized culture we live in, a common ground to understand the rapid change we live in to preserve what's essential to be human.

Two performers from two sides of the world find themselves amidst a digitalized space.
We see them interact with each other and with other people, in our mundane, physical world, through a portal and so does their digitalized version.
We see them in between places: becoming (part of) the portal.
We see a digitalized version of them. It is about identity and starts from a physical identity to a personal identity, becoming a digital identity that in itself again influences their physical and personal identity again.
