Bay Area dance companies Kinetech Arts (co-directed by Daiane Lopes De Silva and Weidong Yang) and Smith/Wymore Disappearing Acts (co-directed by Sheldon B. Smith and Lisa Wymore) will be in conversation talking about their years of experience working within the intersection of dance and technology.
Kinetech Arts will share their extensive experience making experimental, community-based works that bring engineers into the same rooms as creative makers and dancers. Smith/Wymore Disappearing Acts will discuss their ongoing interest in artificial intelligence and improvisation. Both dance companies are making new works for the Department of Theater, Dance, and Performance Studies to be performed from February 17–20, 2022 in The Playhouse at Zellerbach Hall.
Presented by UC Berkeley’s Department of Theater, Dance, and Performance Studies.
