Slowly we get used to it. Relationships without physical contact. Without bodily consequence. We stare at a screen and say we are in contact with other people. We talk to the screen, walk with the screen, eat and toast with the screen. At the same time, our neck grows firmly in a forward-bent direction, our fingertips wear against buttons, our eyes are sent flickering around in a sea of light of interruptions.
In the performance “The Driverless Man”, we follow a lonely man from a digitalized world, who turns the time back to the 60s, to a time of postmen, landlines and thick books in an attempt to re-establish contact with his social abilities and his body’s material need. But something has been lost. He looks out of the letterbox for hours, picks up the phone and listens every other moment; only to be more and more disappointed… Will he never again succeed in making contact with his original self? As he repeatedly tries, he is plagued by restless digital abstinences and longing for the automated robotized present he has left…
