The rain keeps falling (2014)

Taking as a starting point the housing circumstances in e.g. China where apartments are split in half in order to house an extra family, where people are hired to push travelers into trains, and even looking at the current situation in Amsterdam where containers are turned into houses and tourism keeps expanding. The Rain Keeps Falling researches in a physical way the effect of overpopulation. How it affects our bodies and the interaction we have between one another.

In a space with little room and even less freedom of movement it looks for a way to deal with the other in close proximity. How do you relate to claustrophobia, to xenophobia? And can we deal with this diminishment of personal space?
