lucky dragons shows are about the birthing of new and temporary creatures–creating equal-power situations in which audience members cooperate amongst themselves, to build a fragile network of digital signals connected by touching on the skin. There have been hundreds of these simple yet shifting and unpredictable instances–with audiences ranging from the intense intimacy of one person to the public spectacle of over one thousand people. At the heart of it all is playing together–building up social collectivities, re-engaging the wonder and impossibility of technology and live performance. It sounds–and looks–like simple and ancient patterns coming together and falling apart in a sincere attempt to let wires and screens and words become clear and crystal.
