Thursday, September 8, 2022 from 6:30-7:30 PM
Join Making Moves on Thursday, September 8th for an evening-length performance by Alexis Borth. This dance production explores the growing tension in society between technological advancement and a primal need to reconnect with the organic. Borth asks the audience, “have we shaped technology to enhance our human lives, or have machines made us obedient servants to a synthetic system?” The performance takes place in Charlotte Street Foundation’s Stern Theater at 6:30pm.
