Seekers: A Bi-Coastal Dance Improvisation
Presented by Boston Cyberarts Festival
April 30, 2011
Seekers looks at the human need for intimacy and connection in a world where distance and technological mediation is the premise for a majority of our communications. Four performers in a studio in Los Angeles will created movement portraits or “profiles” which will be broadcast line onto monitors in Atlantic Wharf‘s Waterfront Square, where a second cast of performers will interact with them in real time. Seekers asks – to what degree is it possible to virtually capture and transmit the depth and complexity of life experience from person to person? The piece calls attention to the role that fantasy, desire and imagination play in the absence of presence. Conceived and directed by Alissa Cardone and Alla Kovgan of Kinodance Company.
