Voted Edmonton’s best dance company in Vue Weekly’s 2012 Best Of, the Good Women Dance Collective returns with its second annual Convergence – an evening of inspired contemporary dance performance coupled with experimental interactive technology, December 6 through 8 at L’Uni Theatre (8671 91 Street).
Exploring themes of modern technology and our constructed versions of reality, the ability to be two places at once, and the juxtaposition of the modern world versus the natural world around us, Convergence begs the question: is being too accessible damaging honest human connection?
“Our concept of communication is becoming skewed,” says Good Women co-founder and collective artist Ainsley Hillyard. “Could you actually fall in love with someone via Face Time? Using the tactile and sense-oriented medium of dance, we explore the notion of being in two places at once, we examine the value of virtual versus real relationships.”
A double bill featuring an extended version of Ainsley Hillyard’s Face Time, Convergence also employs the design talents of visual artist Kevin Green, and the use of five projectors, in the new collaborative work (de)Compose, which will see live interaction between movement artists and Green, creating a responsive landscape where Green is as much a performer as the dancers.
