In Islands of empathy (in a sea of chaos), Club Guy & Roni explores how empathy can be a driving force in the way we live together. In the Netherlands, we’ve learned always to be the best versions of ourselves as individuals, independently of others’ needs. If you need help, there must be something wrong with you: this is a society in which self-reliance is the norm, and dependence on others a sign of weakness. In many other communities, the collective comes to the fore: with less support from government, people rely more on one another.
Islands of empathy is part of Club Guy & Roni’s Human Odyssey, which investigates feelings like love, fear, happiness, and empathy from an intercultural perspective and in collaboration with an international dance company.
