Two things we’ve all wanted more of at some point in our lives: privacy and publicity. Choreographer Maia Harari and art historian Nico Machida have organized a program of dance and video art that takes on timely ideas of public persona, private reality, and the role that new technology has played in redefining both.

Works Featured:

Maia Harari Dance Theatre, Chloe in Fast Forward and Short Fall
Christine Dehne, Conversations in the City
Zig Gron, Door Opera
Russell Chartier and Paul Botelho, Confined
Jennifer Berger, Cheeta and The Orange Bathing Suit
