Where are the dances right now and how do these dances want to behave/exist/interface in a digital plane? Erika Mitsuhashi asks these questions through an experimental livestream experience, Making It Up: The Meeting. Playfully using a livestream video feed and DIY-sonography, Erika reveals an imaginative microcosm: a world built in isolation, where a sacred meeting ensues between a cosmic vibrant-being and their assigned flesh-being on Earth. This is complemented by Being(s) in plain site, a collection of visual and text-based reflections – part-photo essay, part-blog.
The Meeting is the first chapter of a performance anthology, Making It Up, and a continuation of initial research shared during the response.’s Dance Cafe, for the 2020 Dancing on the Edge Festival digital programming.
Being(s) in plain site is a weekly collection of visual and text-based reflections, thoughts and imagined narratives, revealing a practice of being simultaneously hidden and revealed within plain site.
