Taking on Selfie Culture, The Dance That Documents Itself will challenge conceptions of performance with a new production combining performing bodies, online social networking, and video projection in an examination of the impact of tech on our artistic practices and the art and culture of San Francisco.
A dance of process, community, memory, and resistance, The Dance That Documents Itself uses social networking and digital media to examine the effects of those very technologies (and the socio-economic conditions they spawn in communities) on dancing bodies, and to expose the threads of human interaction that come together to become a live dance performance.
The Dance That Documents Itself features four dancers and incorporates live-feed and recorded video with live and recorded music to dynamically explore how technologies affect our lives, dancing bodies, the creative process, and the communities that we live in.
The Dance That Documents Itself will have a total of 8 performances, December 4th-14th Thursday-Sunday at 8:30 pm.
