Aerowaves Twenty20 FRAMEWORKS. Digital as dance partner

Twenty20 FRAMEWORKS dives into new dance territory opened up by interactive technology. Triggered by confinement and its restrictions on live performance, this new Aerowaves and Springback Production initiative invites artists to search for ways to transform the digital medium into their dance partner, rather than as a way of showing their dance works or making dance for the camera. Their live and recorded projects –from 5 to 30 minutes long– will be showcased on the digital stage (streamed on Zoom, Aerowaves and commissioning Partners’ websites).
