The play Intimacy deals with the most pressing issue of today – the new virus. It explores what changed in our lives, our work and attitude towards ‘the other’ and ourselves. Through a series of short stories about distance, discipline, privacy and new relationships formed in the periods of (self-)isolation, actors Leon Lučev and Jelena Graovac are trying to examine whether it is possible to preserve intimacy in the age of the pandemic.
