Interfacing Intimacy

Is technology distancing us from each other? Or can it help us connect in new ways? I am a theater director and performance artist dealing with digital performance, mediated intimacy and sex education. I will talk about intimacy and how we can create it on and off screen, showing my different artistic attempts in mediated intimacy in digital performance.
