Choreographer Joan Karlen’s Ringtone offers a glimpse into the juxtaposition between physical contact and mediated, screen communication. Ten dancers loop and weave over a series of ramps creating a network of danced relationships. Projected and live images are mixed in real time creating layers of visual and textural information. Composer Max Richter’s series of compositional ringtones provides melodic counterpoint for the athletic and fluid choreography.
