Event description

Description

BOTHER is an interactive and durational dance piece inviting the audience to influence, positively or negatively, the fate of the dancer in front of them.

This workshop is an opportunity for anyone to experience the installation from the point of view of the performer. The first part will be a series of exercises to prepare you physically to react to the different inputs from the audience, encouraging you to explore different movement textures, from joy to pain. In the second part, you will have the opportunity to "be the performer", dance and interact with the technology, while the rest of the group plays the role of the audience.

All levels, backgrounds, experiences welcome!
(Maximum 10 people, please register)

-

BOTHER [/ˈbɒðə/] (verb) - Take the trouble to do something / Feel concern about or interest in / Cause trouble or annoyance by interrupting or otherwise inconveniencing someone.

BOTHER is an interactive and durational dance piece inviting the audience to influence, positively or negatively, the fate of the dancer in front of them.

It explores the notions of control, care and digital harassment, questioning how we behave differently when interacting with each other through the proxy of technology. It also intends the portray the impact of that alien agency, inducing pleasure, joy, violence or pain.

BOTHER is set up as a social experiment, exploring how the audience will react when given the power to control the dancer. Will they behave in an empathetic way, allowing the dancer to be free and happy? Or will they act in a more sadistic way, generating violent reactions? Will they care more about the person in front of them or the entertainment they get from the performance?
