Presented in partnership with New Dance Horizons and the Dunlop Art Gallery. Special thanks to FadaDance.
CPA (Consistent Partial Attention) is a performance guided by a video score of preexisting and found internet footage of individuals improvising and dancing in their homes. The performers engage in an act of real-time translation of data and movement vocabularies from the video score, expressing how we experience dance as a vernacular form of expression via the internet.
