Whether intentional or not, every action you take affects someone else. This correspondence ripples throughout your sphere of influence and beyond, creating both positive and negative outcomes. These connections at their core highlight how we are as a society – tied together. As face-to-face contact becomes displaced by text messages, social media and zoom meetings, we lose the essence of what it once meant to be connected. Staying emersed in a virtual bubble skews what information we have access to and distorts the very nature of how human contact will look in the future. On the other hand, this separation has allowed for more creative forms of communication and has promoted more unity by linking together more communities than it was ever thought possible. In this new technological age, we all must explore and reevaluate what it means for people to connect to one another.

MADCO: TIED TOGETHER investigates the nuances of connectivity through stories of human interactions. The works of five choreographers explore the numerous ways we interact with one another and how they impact our everyday lives. In true MADCO form, collaborations and partnerships with community leaders and educators help inform the choreography. Each work explores the complicated nature of human connectivity, be it interpersonal, virtual, or somewhere in between. Coupled with MADCO’s unique blending of athleticism and artistry, the dancers will not only captivate audiences, but also challenge them to reflect on the connections that exist in their lives and realize that we may be more connected than we think.
