ABOUT

HASHTAG 2.0 is a new type of performance that describes people's relationships on social media with dance and technology. Social media is essential for modern life. What happens when we re-produce the world of social media with other media - dance? HASHTAG 2.0 describes these two sides of social media with movement and technology. The performance was live-streamed on Facebook and Twitter. The audience inside or outside of the gallery could make comments and discuss each other during the performance. Live streams were projected on the walls and dancers performed around the audience who were sitting in the middle.
