Workshop : konic will offer a workshop inside the perfomance space: Sunday, September 11th 2pm to 6pm
Before the Beep is a dance-performance piece inside an interactive space, and with audience participation. Kònic Thtr understands this piece as a space for encounter with local dancers and choreographers, elaborating a site specific event every time it is presented.
In 2011 three versions will be presented in Brazil, China and the US, each time with different collaborators. In this case, we will present the piece in New York with the collaboration of dancer Grace McCants
Before the Beep refers to the changes of perception in interpersonal communication mediated by new technologies, and to the spaces that this mediation generates. The piece confronts the body with these same communication technologies, and explores how these re-write the body and change our understanding of place and the idea of presence, redefining narrative, individuals and culture.
