A human being, as a rule, lives and acts in various networks. They provide a safe environment that supports that human, and at the same time they motivate and inspire us to grow and evolve in any imaginable direction. In our modern, digital, and globally oriented lives, our networks increase. Regardless of space and time, cultural identities can be supported and trans-national relations can be fostered. However, the increase of trans-national relations also hold risks. Worldwide financial crises could only arise through global networks. Health crises like the corona pandemic have therefore been fed. During and after crises, another question arises: How can we use our networks in such emergency times for a better solidary? n-e-t-w-o-r-k-i-n-g represented people and their networks through a multi-disciplinary performance. In a mixture of contemporary dance, live-installation, and composition, performers show how to create and use networks and how they can help to overcome times of crises
