Production and Reception of the Visual
February 22, 2010
This lecture is the kick-off of our spring series. Xavier Le Roy will explore the relationships between the production and reception of the visual. What do spectators see? Watching a choreography, they see not only a form or a content, but processes at work during the production of the movements in rehearsals as well as during execution of the movements in performance. How and when are these relationships constructed? Xavier Le Roy French choreographer Xavier Le Roy is in residence at the MIT Program in Art, Culture and Technology (ACT) this spring.
