Gaze is a Gap is a Ghost (2012)

Description

In Gaze is a Gap is a Ghost, Daniel Linehan establishes a dialogue between the visible and the invisible, generating a confrontation between our external knowledge of the world and our internal imaginative life. Using video cameras, he gives us the impression that we are looking through the eyes of the three dancers. From the “inside” view, it appears that it is not so much the dancers who are moving, but rather the space itself which is spinning around and turning upside down. In this way Gaze is a Gap is a Ghost poses a series of questions about the relationship between humans and technology, between the real and the virtual. How does impersonal technology influence our ideas of intimacy? How do the digital media influence the way we experience our physical existence? In the end, the performance emphasizes the inevitable and irreconcilable divide separating the dancer from the choreography, separating the human from the structure.
