Each year, Juventas' PROJECT FUSION brings you collaborative projects, from live painting, to politics, to choral works.
This season, Juventas joins the New York City-based contemporary dance company The People Movers on an electroacoustic, multi-media exploration of how technology has revolutionized political dissidence. Peter van Zandt Lane's HackPolitik, a new ballet based on the global hacktivist group known as Anonymous, sets the politics and drama of cyberspace to the stage. The piece is a surrealist exploration, through music and dance, of how the internet has affected discourse in the 21st century, blurring the lines between activism and anarchy.
