Re:borN Dance Interactive and architecture studio Curious Minds Los Angeles present an interactive performance that uses choreography, architecture, and technology to explore the act of surveilling and being surveilled.  The performance draws from the Panopticon, an 18th century prison structure designed by philosopher and social theorist Jeremy Bentham, which allows inmates to be observed by a single watchman without the inmates knowing whether or not they are actually being watched, driving them to regulate their behavior as though they are constantly being observed.  The psychological effects produced by the panopticon have foreshadowed contemporary social conditions, where the feeling of surveillance is omnipresent - from the myriad of surveillance cameras around us, to the fear of our own technology watching us, and even further to our own voluntary creation of constant visibility through virtual profiles.

 

OMNISCOPIC leverages the parallels of surveillance and performance, challenging the roles of audience and performer as physical and digital forms of surveillance evolve.  A narrative of choreography and spatial installations conveys notions of control, isolation, empathy, and finally a sense of the inescapable power and ubiquity of surveillance.
