MEDIA: COMPOSERS AND COMPUTERS

When dancers dynamically interacted with manmade nets in our choreographic piece “In*Tension” (Seattle, June 2019), the nets exhibited counterintuitive stiffness properties. They stiffened under increased dancer impact loading and this phenomenon substantially differed for the orthogonal and bias net topologies. In this podcast ‘Dance me to the End’ Rebecca Lazier , choreographer and I talk about the creation choreographic works that generate a new understanding of how different net topologies rigidify when loaded and soften when unloaded.
