builds off this concept of freedom, and uses Internet technology as a

introducing    an    original    marriage
between    technology    and    the
performing     arts.

The performance aspect is twofold. First, there will be a live performance that will utilize projected web pages to  e n h a n c e  the concert experience. Second, Internet audiences will be able to   e x p l o r e  an interactive version of the concert on-line.

Using a hyperlink approach to presenting dance will create a unique experience for viewers. With visual imagery preceding each piece, the audience will have the opportunity to
