Alone or Not: Perception, Body and Social Media

Alone or Not: Perception, Body and Social Media is a choreographic frame for creating and exchanging bodily experiences. Participants send short SMS messages or tweets about their movement, actions and perceptions to each other. Together they create a social network of bodily movement that becomes a shared choreography that is documented in Twitter and the project’s website.

Owing to technical reasons the SMS message exchange works only through Finnish telephone operators and mobile phone numbers with the country code (+358) that are used in Finland. If you want to join the SMS group you should enroll by the 12th of September 2011 at info [at] You can also participate directly through Twitter.

…send kinaesthetic tweets and improvise wherever you may be.” Susan Kozel

“IntuiTweet” by Susan Kozel

Susan Kozel wrote: “(T)he IntuiTweet project (is) an initiative that began in conjunction with the Theatre Academy and University of Art and Design in Helsinki but which will be developed further here (MEDEA is a centre for new media at Malmö University, Sweden). The goal of this project is to provoke and exchange physical intuition or movement using Twitter. Can a social networking platform also be a way to enhance the performance of every day lives? Do Social Choreographies result?

As we start this IntuiTweet project again, another round of improvisations from Sweden, this time I’m wondering about voice, relevance and ‘audience’: who are these tweets for? With other improvisations they were for a limited number of people participating in the improvisations: Continue reading

Screendance 2.0: Social Dance-Media

Special Edition of Participations: Screen Dance Audiences, Volume 7, Issue 2: Screendance 2.0: Social Dance-Media by Harmony Bench, The Ohio State University, USA.

Abstract: This essay argues that, as dance and screen media conjoined to create the hybrid art practice of dance-media, so too are dance-media and social media converging to produce an area of artistic experimentation I call social dance-media. This essay explores three strands of social dance-media — crowdsource, flash, and viral choreographies — and provides examples of each. Following protocols from social media, each of these modalities represents a form of participatory choreography or performance that evidences social media’s impression upon dance in contemporary popular culture.
