About: This piece consists of a dialogue between two artists in London and Riga linked through the digital environment, at the notion that new technology challenges where the human body begins, ends and is present in thedigital age drawing. The unification of art and science has impacted in the field of professional dance, pioneered in 21stCentury through the artistic collaboration across all disciplines, reimagining what dance can do as new technologies offer a meaning to merge the borders between that intersection to challenge the future of what dance looks like, as the collaboration of the new technology offers creative futures, where dance can make things different to be used as a re-examination of the past, in order to understand the possibilities for the future. Furthermore, this piece explores even more the idea of collaboration between two artists interacting both with the real and the digital environment as the one cannot be conceived without the other, so that a symbiosis between them is established, palpable in everything that surrounds them.
