Reframed

Electric Company Theatre (Vancouver, BC)
Video 9 / 12
Subtitles available in English and French

Gathering dozens of performers in a natural environment, moving together in choreographed formations, Reframed gives poetic voice to online shorthand and emojis. 

In contrast to the isolation of reacting to information on a screen, the project aims to physically transform an escalating online discourse into a voiced expression of multiple perspectives.

As an examination of outrage and divisiveness, propelled and exacerbated by virtual algorithms, Reframed poses the question: “How do we engage?”

Produced in association with Vancouver New Music, Dance House and Vancouver Civic Theatres. Special Thanks to Bard on the Beach and BC Bike Fest.
