First off, big thanks to Jennifer Nagle Myers for the various interviews(s) about Empathy Machine. Found here: https://medium.com/@jennifernaglemyers
So what is empathy machine?
In the words of a D.C. audience goer, “Oh my god, that was incredible!” Seems to be the best way to describe it. It is a project spearheaded by the multidisciplinary duo of slowdanger. A while ago I built an LED ring for the dangers to perform under. The project grew organically and went from 15-minute performances into a one hour queer sci-fi dance drama. To me, it is about the story; A piece with human connection, purpose, actions, and consequences. We had sold-out show(s) in Pittsburgh, D.C., and NYC. I can only hope that others will have the opportunity to see it again. The Promo from Empathy Machine created by Char Stiles. I feel blessed to be a collaborator on this project, it’s too cool.
