Inspired by Mike Daisey's "The Agony and Ecstasy of Steve Jobs", The Connected: Bundle #1 uses language, movement, and elements of classical storytelling to explore how technology both binds us worlds away and separates us face-to-face. Entangled in the web of interactive media and bound by (and to) our devices, are we building a modern day Tower of Babel?
