Émilie Morin CA/QC — All Voices, Nameless and Singular
All Voices, Nameless and Singular is a dance performance that investigates how to use choreography with the consumer telecommunication technology Skype, and the artists’ personal laptop and iPhone, to construct images of oneself. The lens of the “conventional selfie” acts as the conceptual framework to explore how a conscious embodiment of the choreographed gestures can create new relations within the dancing body, between the body and the images, and between the audience and the images.
