Surveillance2.0 is a voyeuristic experience unpacking the tension around privacy issues highlighted by pandemic life. BARE Dance Company’s completely live production brings new meaning to immersive performance, creatively using multiple feeds — and even a drone camera– in the theater at Tribeca Performing Arts Center. Cinematic in scope, with free-moving cameras wielded by the performers, Surveillance2.0 is inspired by the increased scrutiny of personal spaces during quarantine prompted by platforms like Zoom.
With 2 performances (see below), each presentation is unique due to real-time mixing of visual and audio feeds — handled by director Mike Esperanza– on YouTube Live. See shows below:
