Bodies and things are inherently relational and porous, always ready to be reconfigured and entangled. The improvisational performance seeks to materialize the proposition of a more horizontal playground for dancing with machines, requiring us to get entangled and resonate with them. It means collapsing the distance between subjects and objects, stretching and opening up the boundaries between them, exploring the spaces in-between, and extending tentacles into other boundary spaces. Getting entangled, the diffractive way, Dancing with the Nonhuman activates a hybrid playground for rendering boundaries elastic and differences relational.
