Audio / video / performance:

Duration: 10m32s
 
Format available: Digital File

Performance for web camera / video documentation of a web performance
 

This video returns the 60-minute stage work CPA [Consistent Partial Attention] to the internet, in a condensed version broadcast from Olafson’s studio in Winnipeg over Skype. CPA is an exercise in ‘nowness’; the performer engages in the act of real-time translation of data / movement vocabulary from a video score of dances that were found on youtube. In CPA we experience dance as a vernacular, learned language, permeating and crossing communities, provoking consideration upon the evolution of dance in the age of the internet.
