"RE/CONNECT was a witty and sometime satirical investigation of the powerful impact social media communication has had on daily life, especially for those in the millennial generation. Through clever projection techniques the performers are placed, quite literally, inside the user interfaces of Facebook, Twitter,  online chat, and text messaging. In so doing, the creators humorously demonstrate how we have been subsumed by those interfaces, and that -- for better or worse -- the nature of communication between friends and lovers has been forever changed."
