Hello Lesley

I read your recent messages on dtz about your research, and after just getting
back to Germany after our migbot lab in Chichester, I thought I respond briefly
by saying that i am not sure whether an invitation to Houston would help you
(although we have good science departments here and a space program at NASA),
since there's not much dance & technology going on in town, although the Houston
Grand Opera is experimenting with a new modular multimedia stage and has been
more experimental, in a sense, than the dance community as such.

I have a couple of chapters in my new book on 'media and performance' which
deal with the relations dance&science historically as well as with a
contemporary perspective on practice (production), not reception, and if you are
interested, let me know, and I send you the texts via email.

best wishes,
