IN MEDIAS RES

In Medias Res (2020) What happens when you embody a facebook feed on stage, and how can the composition found on sosial media be danced? In Medias Res is a dance theatrical performance reflecting an absurd worldview that appears on social media, where world crises are presented equally with selfies, clickbait and videos of cats. Using body and voice, 5 dancers are translating a jumble of current content from the screen, which is then danced out in a chaotic and comic collage.
