Matt Cornell is smashing together his love of mixed reality, hyper-distribution and dancing. With Hsin Ju Ely and Gabe Comerford, Matt will make (very) short dance duets and reconsider those into animated GIFs. Each day there will be a simultaneous, global, world premiere of a new dance, sent by MMS to subscribers. You can sign up (it’s free) by emailing your phone number (with country code) to GIFofdance@mattcornell.com
Matt is interested in hyper-distributed, non-geographically exclusive, time shiftable, live performance of dance and choreography and driven to making choreography (and its performance) as integrated into the tapestry of everyday life as any other digital notification.
If you sign up:
*your phone number will remain confidential and only utilised in this specific phase of creation. You can opt-in for future seasons.
*you can leave the theatre/cancel at any time by replying with “NO THANKS”
*there should be no financial cost to you via your carrier unless you’ve already exceeded your data usage allowance
*a dance will be sent out weekdays between October 17th-26th inclusive
*anyone can join at anytime so spread the word!
*if you phone has a colour screen it will almost certainly be able to receive and play gifs
