In "HopeMe," choreographer and performer Anna Anderegg faces six screens. In this dynamic landscape of screens, her body meets several of its digital versions. "HopeMe" is a dance performance that reflects on societal notions of beauty and body images and questions forms of self-expression in the digital world. The hope for a more beautiful, better, more attractive and more fitting body is nowadays visible as a social phenomenon especially on social media and online platforms. This is because the digital space is a large playing field in which beauty is performed and in which people self-stage, observe and evaluate each other. "HopeMe" looks at the underlying mechanisms and asks: how do physical bodies change under the influence of digital (self-)representation? How do analog and digital bodies inform and transform each other? Which social ideal images emerge in the process and how can these be broken? In "HopeMe" the performer constructs and deconstructs her own environment, inserts herself into it and separates herself from it. On stage, the digital sphere, including its formability, is thus transformed into a physical space in which ideals and norms of beauty are transformed and reflected upon.
