Work > INFOXICATION
Inspired by the influx of information that defines the digital era, curator Roya Sachs, harpist Ashley Jackson and composer Danielle Eva Schwob present lNFOXICATION, a cross-disciplinary performance that probes the way in which technology has transformed our daily lives, with site specific choreography by Dusan Tynek.
Merging disciplines of live art, music, dance, and Google technology, each chapter deconstructs a basic element of modern life and explores the physicality of each experience in a relevant, contemporary context. WAKING subtly heaves audiences out of their slumber and into an information-saturated reality with solo cello and electronics. WORKING depicts our technology-driven routines in a sequential narrative with high energy repetition and movement - accompanied by renowned PUBLIQuartet and a score by Steve Reich. WANTING explores the detached nature of contemporary human connections through fast melody and motion - with music by the quartet and a world premiering composition by Danielle Schwob. Finally, WITHDRAWING shifts audiences into the organic corporeal world, accompanied by live body artist Heather Hansen and solo cello.
