Featuring five dancers, two computational artists, and one responsive LED sculpture, Pittsburgh-based slowdanger presents a new evening-length work that examines empathy as a continual process. In empathy machine, technology, sound, and movement physicalize the impact of intimacy and how it ripples through an imagined, futuristic society. Performers dramatically change their environment through responsive technology and an expansive light sculpture. By sensitizing the audience to the effects of movement in space, the work proposes a process to reconnect with our bodies as a tool for resilience and resistance against oppressive systems.
slowdanger produces performances, immersive experiences, and open-level workshops/educational initiatives. anna and taylor develop soundscores for theater, dance, film and virtual reality projects as well as act as interdisciplinary movement consultants for actors, musicians, and architects. From directing music videos to scoring plays, slowdanger transforms its shape to adapt to a variety of performative containers.
