In the Ether by ARCOS, featuring Erica Gionfriddo

SHIFT | Dance Festival presents Austin-based ARCOS Dance in a premiere of In the Ether, a transmedia performance that actively integrates live-streaming video and live performance, posing questions about our relationship with current technologies and the way they distort the performance of identity in our culture. How deeply does social media permeate our psyche, beyond the pleasurable (and physiologically addictive) pings of “likes,” “comments,” or “shares?” How many versions of ourselves do we curate for different media platforms? How has the corporate concept of “branding” translated to our personal development? How do we navigate this virtual “ether” audience in our daily lives?
