A collaborative, transcontinental dance study led by four female choreographers.
Moving into the 21st century, dance is encountering new territories of possibility. Project Trans(m)it is a collaborative, long-term research and performance project delving into tech-riddled space. It is led by choreographers Lora Allen (allendance), Becca Weber (Somanaut Dance) and Megan Mizanty (MizantyMoves Dance Works), and Andrea Lanzetti (bodies and plants). Their points of inquiry include transmittance of dance/movement via technology, transference of choreographic ideas in different physical spaces (all choreographers are based in different cities), what is gained/lost in these transfers, and which technological platforms are best used for which types of physical information transmission. The research supports the development of the collaborative's performance work, but another integral strand for Project Trans(m)it is the dissemination of 'best practices' to other artists interested in long-distance collaboration and the facilitation of international networking.
