Contemporary dance, technology and democracy – How is the body movements defined in times of democracy due to technology?
This project explores how the body movement is defined in times of democracy due to technology. The outcome is in the form of a performance with a contemporary dancer. How does an aesthetic as performance act within a world that has a constant surveillance on their citizens? Movements that are ruled and controlled by cyber platforms from surveillance that is shaped by economic and state power.
Technology has brought a new culture with obsessions of selfies and self-investment as we strive to be desirable. Dance and performance gives this unspoken language power by making it concrete through body movements. These movement can be seen as a commodification by a capitalistic and narcissistic system. Performance breaks these grids and questions, what is your movements beyond these constrains, and who is the master of your movements?
