ZviDance founder and artistic director Zvi Gotheiner concludes his trilogy about social interaction and technology with Like, making its world premiere at New York Live Arts November 8-11. Following 2010’s Zoom and 2014’s Surveillance, the new evening-length piece allows the audience to participate in the proceedings by using their cell phones to vote in a reality-television dance competition to determine the course of events and dancers. Choreographed by the Israeli-born, New York City-based Gotheiner, the work features eight dancers, a score by Scott Killian, lighting by Mark London, and media design by Joshua Higgason, with numerous cameras, computers, and screens following the action and providing resampled live streams, prerecorded news footage, and real-time interviews with the performers as well as members of the audience.
