SMS – Soft Message Service is a performance about human communication and interaction in the era of New Media. Digital technology and means of communication are developing faster than our social culture. Digital media enables a person to detach oneself from physical, national and cultural boundaries. The experience of significance is built in a different way in new operating systems rather than in a physical contact. The number of possibilities are unlimited!
SMS is a moment between the audience and two performers, where the members of the audience can send messages to the performers. During the performance, the contact is examined through various messages leading to an encounter.
