Rory Willats: Come, Fur(r)ies, Dance: Desire and Ritual

Rory Willats "Come, Fur(r)ies, Dance: Desire and Ritual"

Come, Fur(r)ies, Dance! is a series of devised performance experiments exploring how masculinity is navigated, manipulated, and remade in virtual communities. This performance combines the live motion data from three different spheres of pedestrian gesture to create a new choreography–a launching point from which to explore how these flows manifest within and between the hybrid body.
