Drawing upon the work of practioners and theorists in the arts, communications and technology theorists and , Invisible Connections makes special reference to Popat’s series of Internet-based choreography projects from with online communities around the globe, and explores:
* methods by which such technologies can facilitate creative collaborations between performers and viewers
* how sharing creative processes between online communities can enrich the artistic palette and provide arts-based learning
* how the Cartesian duality of the mind-body split is challenged by the physicality of dancing and choreography together online.
With its dual aspect approach, from the author as an artist/researcher and the appendix being written by a software designer, the historical perspective on performance on the internet coupled with the writing makes this a must read book for any student of performance, dance or communication studies.
