Erica Mott: Mycelial

Inspired by the first revolution led on social media, Arab Spring (2010), Mycelial is a new performance that questions the existence of kinetic empathy through technology platforms. Using data captured from twitter feeds (# Egypt, #Yesallwomen & #BlackLivesMatter) during the social uprising, Chicago-based artist Erica Mott translates the rate, rhythm, emotional affect and spacialization of this feed through algorithmic analysis into choreography for 4 dancers (2 from Egypt, 2 from the US).

These narratives can often drive the creative process while carrying larger messages that can be overlooked. Fugitive Narrative curated by Mike Nourse, will bring stories to the forefront, by featuring Chicago artists whose works are driven by abstracting narratives.
