In Torrence 6-36-86, I continued to focus on the effort of interface wherein I look at technology as a tool and examined its function as a point of interface, specifically with regards to the proximity of human connection. I was particularly interested in the effort that involves both a technological component and a human component - how convenient, how easy, how much honest effort do we allow ourselves in order to be connected? I asked these questions of my collaborators and together we created a collaborative, interdisciplinary, immersive dance theatre event that consists of new choreography and video dealing with the ideas of proximity, accessibility, and domesticity.
