Hi folks, I just wanted to share my recently completed MA thesis on three related styles of underground urban dance styles (liquid, digitz, and finger tutting) that are typically danced to electronic music. You can check it out on http://www.diegomaranan.com/?page_id=2158 if you're interested. :)

In the thesis, I illustrate how technology has influenced creative, embodied practices in urban dance styles. I analyze how technological metaphors underlie conceptual representations of the body, space, and movement in three related styles of urban dance: liquid, digitz, and finger tutting. Following an exploratory netnography of movement practitioners, I claim that unlike most dancers of traditional genres or other urban dance styles, dancers of these three styles frequently employ representations of the body and of space that are geometrical, mathematical, mechanical, or digital. In essence, I argue that the movement styles create the "illusion" that the dancers' bodies have a technological quality to it.

Cheers,

Diego
