For the next installment in my (unexpected!) tour of modern dance, I can’t go past this TED talk on the evolution of dance in the internet age. The dancing is fascinating, but it’s also great to hear about how some dancers are using technology to share techniques, learn new moves and remix what they’ve shared into unique styles.
The presentation is done by the League of Extraordinary Dancers, who I seem to have discovered far too late – the latest episode on their site is from August 2010. It’s interesting to see that they were making episodic content even then – it ties in nicely with the theory that “fantastic and exciting new forms” of media are emerging over the internet, and have been emerging for years now.
