In this dance piece to be presented, five salient experiences and events of the first year of the COVID 19 pandemic – the shutdown and social distancing, the course of COVID infections, the events around the death of George Floyd, the so-called New Normal everyday life, and the vaccines and mutations – are matched with metaphors from basic point-set topology – nowhere dense sets, compact spaces, the product topology, norms as related to metrical spaces, and topological group actions. The dance moves and stage images depict a blend of the relevant topological definitions and the related fragments of reality.
