Human Behaviour, Technology and Dance
During her CBA Fellowship, Sidorova explored several ideas and techniques that she plans to expand and develop in the upcoming years into full-scale choreographies. One area of interest is the influence of technology on our behavior: the way we approach communication, how we perceive ourselves, and what keeps us busy.
