    Description

    Human practices, rhythms, and habits are all being changed by the hyper-presence of screens: we choreograph them as they choreograph us. It is now primarily through screens that we access and experience culture, information, and ideas. I like to imagine the actions and gestures of humans with and on screens as a site for choreographic thinking and discovery. I imagine drawing attention to the movements, timings and spaces that characterize our interfaces with screens. Indeed, this word -- interface or “between faces” -- speaks to the heart of this presentation. What is the choreographic potential of this _between_?
