  • ch of new media work explores some interaction between the real and the virtual worlds. Some of this work may require the viewer to balance conflicting messages coming from different parts of the brain, and challenge the perception of what is real and what is virtual. Other works utilize virtual partners or dopplegangers, which both react to and create reactions in live performers, which may be dancers, actors or robotic structures. The panelists span the areas of dance performance, theatrical performance, robotic installation and interactive media installations, and will discuss how their work intersects these questions of technology and perception.
