Performance | Dance, Society, Technology

Young disabled and non-disabled dancers from Oxford’s Parasol Project have created a new Digital Body film with Alexander Whitley Dance Company. Filmed during the COVID pandemic, their short choreographies, inspired by conversations with scientists from the University of Oxford Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics explore how movement is coordinated within living beings. The real-world movements have been captured and edited together with 3D motion graphics by artists Robin Ashurst and Abel Enklaar at Flat 12 and features music by Rival Consoles.
