Universal Tongue <sup></sup>

Universal Tongue

Twerking, Vogueing, Fortnite, flash mobs, a Sufi or musical chairs: artist Anouk Kruithof is fascinated by dance as a form of self-expression and empowerment. Together with a team of 52 researchers, she collected more than 8,800 dance videos from all over the world on the internet and brings them together in the video installation Universal Tongue. The work explores how dance has developed throughout history as part of our global media culture, and how it manifests itself online today. The immersive installation leads you through the jungle of the internet and shows that dance is a universal language that connects people.

“Dance – the moving body – connects us more than anything else in our diverse and complex world. It recognizes our shared vulnerability and our common human condition. It also points us to the possibility of a more inclusive world with limitless exchange and understanding of new identities, a world where simply everyone is a dancer." - Anouk Kruithof
