Zvi Dance to Present World Premiere of SURVEILLANCE at New York Live Arts, 6/11-14
Led by Israeli-born Artistic Director Zvi Gotheiner, ZviDance will premiere Surveillance, a contemporary dance and multimedia piece that explores the realities behind the surveillance camera. ZviDance's home season will be presented from June 11 - 14, 2014 at the New York Live Arts Theater, 219 W. 19 Street, New York, NY 10011. Performances: Wednesday - Saturday at 7:30pm, & Saturday at 2pm.

Recognized by The New York Times as creating one of Alastair Macaulay's TOP TEN DANCE FAVORITES OF 2013, ZviDance will present its newest work, Surveillance, for five performances only at New York Live Arts June 11-14, 2014. Experience the groundbreaking collaboration of contemporary dance, interactive video design and animation as ZviDance explores how we respond to the omnipresence of this technology in our daily lives. Video streams will be recorded, projected and resampled throughout the evening in live and pre-recorded feeds - blurring the lines between voyeur and exhibitionist. Scott Killian's provocative sound design will use real-time recordings of audiences footsteps, conversations between audience members, and the sound of performers breath to add an aural architecture of inhabitance and domination. Ultimately, Surveillance is a dance piece that examines how and why as a society we consent to this technology in our private lives.
