Platform, commissioned by ODC Theater, is a duet choreographed and performed by Liane Burns and Charles Slender-White. Platform is set to and inspired by Holly Herndon’s 2015 album of the same name, and investigates the relationships between people, the digital spaces they occupy, and the attendant homogeneity that arises from their echo-chamber-creating algorithms. Platform received significant support from the Kenneth Rainin Foundation, Derida Dance Center, Movement Research, the Trust for Mutual Understanding, and CounterPulse.
