Grab a seat or a cushion and watch this dance performance created by Janine Harrington. The dancers’ kaleidoscopic movements evoke the patterns and continuous activity of a screensaver. You can tune in and out and move around the space to get a different perspective. The sounds that you hear will be generated live by Jamie Forth in response to the dancers’ movements.
