Tankman Tango—streaming

2009
Working in with Tankman Tango, the international ephemeral memorial of the massacre at Tiananmen Square on its 20th anniversary, Igneous created this online streamed and networked event linking 8 cities around the world: Auckland, Hobart, Brisbane, Singapore, Belgrade, Dunkerque, Brussels, and Richmond, Virgina. In the networked event, the choreographed dance routine (video 1) was followed by an improvisation (video 2)

Tankman Tango paid homage to the lone man who stood up to the tanks. A dance routine was choreographed based on his movements and performed simultaneously by individuals and groups globally. Original idea by Deborah Kelly http://youtu.be/MziREAZ_WqA
