"#DigitalConnection is a stunning reflection of life inside our screens" -Dallas Art Beat
The Elevator Project is presented with support from the City of Dallas Office of Arts and Culture, Texas Commission on the Arts, National Endowment of the Arts and TACA.
#DigitalConnection by mixtamotus is supported in part by the City of Dallas Office of Arts and Culture.
This live immersive performance offers an interactive environment of dance, media, and music. The performance concludes with a post-show behind the scenes experience educational component including a facilitated Q&A with the collaborators, photo/video opportunities, and technology play time. This new work was conceptualized in response to the current siloed social environment in the United States. mm offers #DigitalConnection as commentary on the importance of human connection, community, and creativity in the digital age. We acknowledge the impact of the digital age and create an opportunity to experience and discuss the impact of technology on art, artmaking, artists, and our world. Content for this project is sourced from the digital space including Instagram polls, Instagram/Facebook Live conversations, and Instagram Stories ‘Questions’.
