Susan Kozel’s MEDEA talk is about dance and social media. “Social Choreographies” is a research initiative but is also a way of looking at the urban world: seeing how we already ‘dance’ with our technologies and how, if we feel like it, can enhance the embodied quality of our mobile lives. She will talk about the IntuiTweet project that uses Twitter to access and exchange movement intuition. Can a social networking platform also be a way to enhance the performance of every day lives? Do Social Choreographies result? She will also talk about a few earlier projects that integrated bodies with sensing technologies.

MEDEA Talks presents: “Social Choreographies”

Friday, October 29 15:00-17:00

Moderator: Tanja Mangalanayagam, Project Manager at Skånes Dansteater
