To conclude their residency, Ilya Vidrin, Jessie Stegall, and the Partnering Lab will preview a two-hour durational performance/workshop, commissioned by the New Museum and developed at the ArtLab.

The program begins with a performance, in which dancers wear sensors designed to track and record subtle movements. The live data is then transmitted to a musician, who responds by interpreting the sensors’ score in real-time. Dancers respond to the sound, creating a feedback loop. The performance will then transition to a workshop, inviting audience members to explore movement-based studies. Through the practice of negotiating touch, proximity, and orientation, participants will investigate the physicality of ethical concepts, including consent, willingness, resistance, receptivity, and responsiveness.
