The Danger of Synchronicity is a collective lecture performance based on state-conceived physical exercises. The performance consists of four chapters: a meditation session, gymnastic exercises, a lecture, and a questionnaire that is answered collectively through physical gestures. The choreography is a combination of national gymnastic exercises of Japan, South Korea, and Germany. The will of a state-directed optimization of individual bodies merges with the individualistic body cult of capitalist societies.
