Emoticons was created as a reflection of our deepening dependence on technology and investigates its effect on our interpersonal relationships. Through fierce athleticism and a bold visual design by lighting designer Eileen Cooley, the work explores how the digital world is infiltrating our daily lives and begs the question, “is technology enabling or disabling our ability to connect?”
Emoticons featured an original score by composer David Karagianis and costume design by Denise Lichter.
The Regina Klenjoski Dance Company oozed, pulsed, undulated, bounced, glided and sailed through the air in their fearlessly athletic and original “Emoticons”, under the sure artistic direction of choreographer Regina Klenjoski. ”
