This documentary focuses on the unique relationship and marriage of modern dance and high technology. Using cutting edge broadband technology, renowned British choreographer, Wayne McGregor, together with Le Groupe de la Place Royale explore modern dance and choreography using ATM (Asynchronomous Transfer Mode) Technology. This is the first time the technology has ever been used in this way; days of rehearsal, discussion, experimentation culminated in a performance in front of a live audience at Canadas Museum of Civilization. Using technology, audiences were part of a virtual performance that literally spanned an ocean!
