Alone or Not? – invitation to join a social improv through Twitter

Alone or not: perception, body and social media is a networked choreographic space for creating and exchanging bodily experiences. Participants send short SMS messages or tweets about their movement, actions and perceptions to each other. Together we create a social network of bodily movement that becomes a shared choreography that is documented in Twitter and the project’s website aloneornot.org

This is an open call for participation either by using the Twitter site or by SMS from your mobile phone. All welcome to join this online international improv project between 13 September – 4 October, 2011.
