For this short I created the choreography by animating the choreography first onto a digital model and then learning it from the animation. I also gave these animated "digital phrases" to dancers who built on the phrases to help create the short, "The Less We Seem To Understand" which was an important building block towards this film. These two processes were combined to choreograph this piece. Filmed during lockdown in 2020, I've become more reliant on technology for everything in my life. Here I'm using the metaphor of the digital puppet to talk more broadly about our reliance on technology.
