Presented by Block Universe in partnership with Dance Art Foundation, Mårten Spångberg’s The Internet pushes the boundaries of performance, intertwining music, dance and sculpture. Investigating the influences of digital communication on choreography and representation, within this performance social networks become secondary audiences, and health apps, games and dating tools are used to generate dance, rhythm and vibe.
