project description:

Texterritory is a playground performance concept in which the audience has control over physical bodies (dancers and musicians) along with lighting, music and midi system at specific times in the performance. Their influence altering the direction of each performance.

Featuring internationally renowned dancer Sheron Wray, the performer(s) will perform and improvise in response to text messages received from registered members of the public, both within and outside of the performance space. Using a mobile gateway created by new media company Digit, computers will tally the results of text messages sent to the audience, each of which will present three possible answers, and present the performers with instructions. It will give the audience interactive control over physical bodies, music and lighting at specific times.
