Telepathy Works is a mental-physical practice, through which two persons enter an imaginary emphatic process with each another. Thus, it seeks to trigger our inherent ability to collectively connect, consciously and physically, and to promote telepathy as a human ability that can be developed rather than a supernatural phenomenon.
I have been developing the practice since 2013 in Cologne/Germany, Tel Aviv/Israel and Seoul/South Korea. In 2019, I presented the practice in public space in the context of Front@ Festival for Contemporary Dance in Murska Sobota/Slovenia. Presenting the practice in public space aims to raise awareness towards non-verbal modes of communicating, connecting and being with others. It asks to remind us that our human capacity for engaging in such practices exists in each one of us.
