CultureHub Live-Wired Presents: Distance Dances
December 1 / 9PM EST
47 Great Jones St, 3rd Floor.
Admission Free / Limited space available
Join us for a live multi-location creative exchange between eighteen dancers in two countries! Using telepresence technology, students from the NYU Gallatin School and students from the Seoul Institute of the Arts in Korea will be able to join together to devise work with one another over thousands of miles of space. Each student will have a chance to create a 1 minute solo movement piece to share with their partner in the other country, via the networked screen. After sharing, both students images will be composited together to allow them to collaborate on an improvised duet. This exciting exchange of ideas will be presented to a live audience in New York and Korea, as well as available to watch as a livestream on Culturehub.org.
