Reciprocal Visions: Reimagining the Dance Performance by Camryn Spero ’24

Jan. 25, 2024, 6:30 p.m.

Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center

Challenging the separation between performers and spectators, Reciprocal Visions re-situates who is viewing whom in the dance performance space. Dancers, as forms of embodied art, are themselves responsive to their environment in ways similar to how audiences react to the performance. How do the audience, the lighting, and sensational experiences physiologically change the dancers’ realization of the performance? Placing cognitive science and dance into a direct dialogue, this thesis performance of original choreography will measure the dancers’ physiological reactions to their environment and to the audience’s visibility. 

Reciprocal Visions will also be performed during the VRDT concert on February 2.
