Bill Shannon’s Touch Update

Bill Shannon’s Touch Update

Known for creating groundbreaking choreographies that explore the social constructions that surround disabled bodies, Bill Shannon’s latest work combines movement, wearable projection technology and video installation to explore the significant and often subtle implications of physical human contact in the digital era. Touch Update “reverse engineers” Shannon’s virtuosic technique for dancing on crutches, as he dissects and dismantles the multiple online identities we create in order to mask and manipulate our lived experience.
