Connecting Movements (2014)

An exploration of the tension between individual and collective identity in which the motion of each of the 3 dancers is combined to control the shape and movement of a single abstract glowing avatar made up of connected points of light. Over the course of the performance, the dancers take turns donning a wireless virtual reality headset enabling them to see their collective movement from within the virtual world.
