Strange Stranger is a dance performance and interactive installation that investigates the right to be forgotten in the digital age. Choreographer Alexander Whitley draws upon the notion of a ‘data shadow’, the traces of information we leave behind when interacting with technology. Strange Stranger explores the paradox of how the more information we have access to, the stranger and more incomprehensible the world seems, and considers the growing divide between the spaces in which our bodies are situated and the places in which we are active. Within a grid of three metre high towers, structures appear, transform and vanish into the shadows as light dazzlingly animates this live interactive space.
Originally commissioned by Sadler’s Wells Theatre and York Mediale. Presented in association with Leeds Dance Partnership.
