Digital Performance in NYC
I'm a choreographer and cognitive neuroscientist in NYC. My dance company, Bodies Never Lie, is in partnership with Columbia University working on a live/digital dance production exploring artificial intelligence. I'm hoping to connect through this forum with artists interested in collaborating on the digital aspect of the performance which is set for March. Some details of the project:
An Artificial Intelligence Nutcracker, 'iNut', is a modernized take on the classic story of the Nutcracker. Fusing diverse dance styles with technology, the work brings together top artists from New York City, neuroscientists, and engineers from around the world. Live dancing pairs with digital projections and tools investigating real-life impact of AI technology through the narrative of the Nutcracker. Using the classic Tchaikovsky score, the work utilizes beautification filters, dating apps, and self-driving cars to explore the benefits and pitfalls of a simulated reality. Through comedy, technology, and dance, INut will ask the audience if an app-free life is good enough.
