Being Alone is a set of webisodes that speaks to our individual struggles with both maintaining and refraining from human connection; isolation and social distancing yields a strange kind of clarity, alongside quirky coping strategies, anxiety, and a sense of loneliness that threatens to overwhelm our day-to-day lives. We’re all pushing forward through the chaos of “now”, but forward often feels like backward, or nowhere at all, without the closeness and clarity of our relationships and social norms.
