PATTERNS OF PERCEPTION
Performance for 4 dancers, a musician and a drone
Surveillance. Technology. Future. "Arguing that you don't care about the right to privacy because you have nothing to hide is no different than saying you don't care about free speech because you have nothing to say" - Edward Snowden.

Patterns of Perception is an interdisciplinary performance at the intersection of technology, dance, and music that addresses the current discourse on surveillance, privacy, and the impact of technology. The work imagines not only dystopian visions of the future but also possibilities of creative, superhuman coexistence by questioning control, dependence, addiction, as well as interplay and harmony with new technologies. The performers embody a machine-learning algorithm gaining autonomy in a system controlled by the drone and music, or a utopian picnic landscape of technological harmony and hypnotic symbiosis, followed by a struggle created by the seamless polarization of the drone.
