Performance, Intimacy and technology

 

How is technology supporting or distracting the audience’s sense of intimacy in dance performance?

 

 

Does the dancing body need assistance through technology in order to create a connection with the audience? What is intimacy in dance? Does it have an important role in a creative work?  This paper questions relationships between technology and intimacy in dance and how it connects and/or distracts us from one another within the performance-audience perspective.

Through interviews with notable choreographers: Inbal Pinto, Yasmeen Godder and Sasha Walt, the paper investigates their desire to create a meaningful connection between performers and audience during live dance performance in today’s fast-paced-technology driven society.
