<fontfamily><param>Geneva</param>I would like to add, that performance
art like art in general is a mirror of its time and therefore of the
state of technology, as our tools/technologies shape the way we live
and think! Through the use of (new) technology in theatre, I engage
with experiences of our time -not to reflect on technology itself, but
to extract the *sensation* and to assign it to a dramatic structure.

</fontfamily>Personally, I don't think that dance programmers and
theatre critics are only following a hype when they show a hightened
interest in theatre using technology, but that they do so because they
feel it is important to deal with the themes evolving around and
through technology as they are relevant to our times!

Best, Isabelle
