Friday, 18 March 2016: ALBUM (dance performance)
ALBUM tracks down memories of the time when the analogue world entered the digital age. From a nascent MTV and videoclip choreographies to today’s self-made YouTube generation compulsively hunting for the perfect self-portrait. How do we portray ourselves in front of a camera? What surroundings do we choose; what references do we make, or not? What do the portrayal, the pose tell us? Who is watching whom?
