Work in progress… Surging Verticality

Coming together for the third time, now at Performance Space, we have begun to develop small experiments around the conversation between somatic bodywork and the crafting of body-centred technologically mediated or augmented audience experiences. Seeking moments of transformation of the ordinary.
