Friday Late: MassHysteria

  • Jenna Mason

A playful new digital work from choreography collective MassHysteria, commissioned by V&A Friday Late. The piece, entitled ‘mh4v&a_1.prologue’, asks how the relationship between audience and performer can be reinvented in the digital space and considers ways to create immediacy and intimacy in this virtual world. 'mh4v&a_1.prologue' is a choreography for desktop. The desktop is the stage. The windows, files and folders are the bodies performing entrances, exits and stillness. mh4v&a_1.prologue continues MassHysteria’s recent experiments into digital performance for a post-touch world.
