Can engaging body awareness facilitate humane connections between people? In this mixed-reality performance led by Ashlee Daniels Taylor, the audience interacts with performers and abstracted digital projections of themselves. This immersive experience invites participants to explore somatic techniques that stimulate body awareness, improvisational movement, and digital technology to generate emergent possibilities for performance. Free.
