Bill Shannon premieres "Touch Update" at New York Live Arts
New York Live Arts
Bill Shannon premieres Touch Update, a new work exploring contemporary modes of digital versus interpersonal representation and physicality. Shannon combines movement, wearable projection technology, and video installation to explore the social constructions that surround disabled bodies. Shannon's crutch choreography is performed by Cirque Du Soleil artist Raphael Botelho Nepomuceno, along with collaborators and performers Ron Chunn Jr., Teena Marie Custer, Anna Thompson, Taylor Knight, Jacquea Mae, Cornelius Henke, and David Whitewolf.
The project is supported by the New England Foundation for The Arts’ National Dance Production Fund, The Heinz Endowments’ Small Arts Initiative, and the National Performance Network.
