Interacting Instead of Distracting
Saturday’s performance ARENA Dances: The Main Street Project gave patrons a message to ponder regarding how we interact to others in our immediate space with distractions of social media every where. Through abstract, modern dance, the director encouraged us to form our own observation of his message. Discussion after the performance during the after show “talk back” with the dancers and director, Mathew Janczewski, focused on how the show made us think about our relationships among distractions of texting, facebook, instagram, and a slew of other digital communications. We are encouraged to be aware of the space we are inhabiting and focus on engaging with the people right in front of us. How do you feel about where we’re headed in communicating with each other?
