    Merging Choreographies Of Camera, Dance, And Screen To Create A Multimedia Performance With Live-Stream Technology
    (2023) McKinney, Christina
    Christina McKinney’s research titled “Merging Choreographies Of Camera, Dance, And Screen To Create A Multimedia Performance With Live-Stream Technology” analyzes the creative process, big idea, and outcomes of creating her work, With Undivided Awareness (2023). This eighteen-minute quartet brought elements of filmmaking onto the stage using cameras, live-streaming software, and projection to create a multimedia performance. With Undivided Awareness contained both in-person interactions between dancers and cameras and a live video feed projected onto a large screen spanning the back of the stage. The creative process for the piece integrated three layers of choreography—camera, multimedia dance, and screen—to result in the multimedia performance that incorporated live-stream technology. With Undivided Awareness displayed dance in an overlapping of human and digital gazes—through which McKinney expanded the experience of where dance happens, what dance is, and how one can dance. She created a new way of dancemaking that shows both context and detail simultaneously through the use of live-streaming cameras to bring the audience an alternate perspective on stage dance.

    Sitting Bull, Buffalo Bill, and Native American Stereotypes
    (2014) Monterrosa, Marcello; Candelario, Rosemary
    Sitting Bull was a great Sioux warrior, holy man and Chief who resisted white culture and domination in the 1800s. The chief was invited by William Cody, aka “Buffalo Bill,” to join the Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show for the 1884‐85 season. The association between Sitting Bull and Cody can be complex and given to debate, but the effect of Sitting Bull’s participation in the Wild West show upon stereotypes of Native American’s in popular culture are profound. Whether Sitting Bull’s participation was beneficial, exploitative, or one of empowerment, his participation in the Wild West Show connected Native Americans with stereotypes that would follow them for more than a century. In this poster presentation, I will be analyzing the effects of Sitting Bull’s Wild West Show legacy in relationship to Native American popular culture stereotypes.
