Constanza Macras being ahead of our time is not something new, but even more fascinating, since her show Here/After from 2011 thematises and critisieses the selfisolation we humans face. Agoraphobia- the fear of opan or social places or not being able to leave these- a fear we  as a society face now more than evr, not only because of social media but also covid. The piece explores the relationship between anonymity and loneliness, between the individual and urban life, between public spaces and its pathological manifestations. We see apartments of oppressive confinement, meet two women who live together and convince each other with all kinds of excuses not to leave their apartment, a lonely musician whose only dream of becoming a rock star ends in being terrified of crowds, a foreigner who never speaks, and a delivery man who is the only link between these people and the dreaded „outside“. Because it has never been so easy to be „with yourself“ in a society that makes confrontation with the „outside“ avoidable with seemingly endless possibilities of communication via the Internet, chat rooms and delivery services. And anyway: what is there out there that you absolutely have to experience live?
