On Thursday evening, July 1st, ZviDance presents ZOOM at the Prospect Park Bandshell as part of Celebrate Brooklyn! ZOOM integrates dance, cell phones, video projection, a real-time web interface, and live music. Conceived by Israeli-born artistic director Zvi Gotheiner and his creative team, ZOOM shatters the wall between audience and performers, creating a new interactive performance environment. Photos and text messages from the audience are used to create real-time video collages. Without the use of words, the audience crosses the proscenium to take close-ups of the performers, finding themselves in a radically different relationship to the creative process.
The bandshell gates open at 7 PM, and the FREE evening begins at 8 PM with a performance by Lottdance. But ZviDance is kicking off the festivities a bit earlier with a potluck picnic from 5 to 7 PM. All are welcome to stop by, enjoy some snacks, and meet the dancers. Details are on the Facebook event page.
