Is it lonely in here? Or is that just me... 

A group of strangers gather to ask more questions than they can possibly answer about what it feels like to be alone.

Together over distance and technology, in many languages, with kindness and a good sense of humour they sift through reality and fiction to find connection.

The Lonely Crowd combines original stories, images, dance and conversation. At times funny and at others deeply moving it explores ideas of loneliness in today’s truly crowded world.
