re: mic-ing dancers and triggers etc...

i'm curious about your reasons for choosing to mic, sample and
texturize spoken word and sounds for dance. when we see, or
construct & perform work of this nature, what is it saying about us
as humans? that we need to find more and more and more and more?
or that we need more texture to compete with the special effects of
the movies and tv that is de-sensitizing the public?

are we saying that it's just not good enough to dance - will we
become addicted to the power of technology? are we saying that the
human body is just not good enough - or as stellark would say that
the human body has become obsolete?
