Dance Machine: Reflections on the Installation Dance Machine, by Lee Su-Feh
AbstractIn this work, I draw upon the experiences of various guest artists, including myself, who acted as "hosts" in the interactive performance installation Dance Machine by Vancouver dance artist Lee Su-Feh. As a space for the body to play, Dance Machine resists the forward-moving logics of political and economic progress. Having no front or back, Dance Machine is to be encountered from all sides. Rather than seeking a forward direction, the idea of becoming entangled in its multidirectional pathways becomes a departure point to question the entangled connections of body, land, technologies, disciplines, and institutions.
