PULSE is a collaborative dance choregraphed by the director of Ballet Florida, Lauren Carey, and creatively designed by Amber Tutwiler. Speaking to the phenomenology of identities within internet spaces, this performance responds to interfaces by creating a chilling interpretation about the duplication of identities within these spaces. Utilizing mirrors, transparent fabric, video, and sound, each dancer responded to a series of writing and meditations, creating movement that flirts with narcissism, the pantopticon, and the eventual return to a singular place: here and now.
