Emotions are dynamic by nature. Social eMotions is a stage/public space performance where the audience chooses the emotional content of the piece in real time. Although the choreography and the musical composition stay the same the emotional content of the movement and the music change and new and constantly evolving dramaturgical and emotional journeys emerge.
The performance is the artistic culmination of a two-year research project exploring communication and dynamics of social emotions, combining artistic and scientific methods. More information about the project can be found at http://bit.ly/SocialEmotions
