BOD[E]SOFTWARE is a new dance work by Sigrid Lauren (FlucT) + Rebecca Warzer (Bennington College) that showcases select F/W 15 pieces from DAIMORF. This dance and fashion event occurred Wednesday February 18th 2015 at 8pm.
BOD[E]SOFTWARE is a generational tongue kiss between two dance artists a decade apart who both recognize the body as a computational and sensual interface. The performance piece uses the moving body as a tool to address the concepts of accelerationism and self-representation.
BOD[E]SOFTWARE is the first ever collaboration between the networking bodies of Gina Chiappetta / Nathalie Encarnacion/ Lauren Glading / Maya Laner / Sigrid Lauren / Whitney Mallett / Monica Mirabile / Gianni Onassis / Seáncé / Whitney Vangrin / Bebe Ya-Ma. The material sources, and subsequently distorts, classical images of gendered self-representation on the Internet, specifically on Instagram. The piece approaches a new language of images that describes a mono-gendered representation online.
BOD[E]SOFTWARE scrolls through material that relates the performativity of these constructed identities on Instagram with the performativity of moving bodies in an IRL dance context.
DAIMORF is a non binary fashion label based in NYC striving to synchronize the sexes via wearable duality. The pieces modeled by the dancers are a combination of the unseen F/W 15 collection, previous S/S 15 collection and custom pieces for the performance.
