2Gether/Al(l)one is an interactive solo dance performance, focused on the feeling of being left alone. It deals with the idea of the need to keep things, people, situations the way they are or bring them back to the original state after they got shifted or broken. The need to replace or bring back the missing part or the missing person is shown through the engagement and support of the audience. So, the solo becomes a duo with the help of the audience.
