The physical medium of dance, interpreted through painting, photography and film, was further amplified and re-imagined via real-time video innovations in the 70’s and 80’s. This exploration continues as choreographers, dancers and stage designers develop new embodied computational techniques to re-imagine the body within physically responsive space and virtual environments. The conversation with choreographer, Norah Zunga Shaw and artist, Paul Kaiser examines current trends and implications inherent in the widening acceptance of digital technologies across the field of experimental theater and dance.
