__ A STUDY IN MOTION! SNEAK PEEK THE BEGINNINGS OF A MOVEMENT!
NEW YORK, NY, November 1, 2011—Computer hackers tweak technology to create unexpected results in cyberspace. With DANCEHACKIT™, a vision of Tony Award-nominated choreographer of RENT Marlies Yearby and director of Craig Harris' Brown Butterfly hailed in the NY Times with technical support from fashionista/ tech guru Bonnie Sandy join together in hopes of creating an extraordinary virtual performance space, crafted by tweaking movement, music, fashion and technology on a global scale.
DANCEHACKIT™ represents a new synergy between arts and technology. “Existing at the intersection of movement, music and technology, DANCEHACKIT™ is designed to remove the limitations of location by being virtual and globally accessible
On November 19, 2011 from 2 p.m. until 4:30pm est, dancers from across the United States, the Caribbean, Europe and West Africa performed to the same musical playlist, at the same time and in their own distinctive styles. Their improvisations were remixed and streamed in real time on a wide screen at Long Island University’s Kumble Theater in Brooklyn (Flatbush Ave., between DeKalb Ave. and Willoughby St.) and online at www.dancehackit.com
DANCEHACKIT™'s first launch was a simultaneous freestyle dance improvisation that launched a virtual Live Performance Play Space. Today DANCEHACKIT™ serves as the stepping stone to a live and captured performance platform of the people for the people...where creative exchanges can take place on every level.
A MOVEMENT of CREATIVE EXPRESSION and CONNECTION through the world wide web!
This platform will generate new working relationships globally, create jobs, attract support for projects outside of mainstream selection, that inspire creativity and feature fresh ideas. We remove the limitations of location by being virtual and globally accessible to everyone. In short this is the beginning of developing a virtual discovery lab and live virtual performance theater where artist at every level can exchange and be experienced by new viewers without geographic concern. Building new audiences, unlikely creative partnerships, across broad geographic reaches, generating new support for now inspired projects is the fuel that makes this virtual space a unique environment for creativity.
WE LAUNCH AGAIN
We learned and now we are preparing to fly again.

Captivating on the exchange of our past we envision adding more pads to include Asia, Africa, North America, Europe, and the Middle East , securing our outcome with our own controlled streaming, making partnerships to support our components and help share our vision. Documenting our launch pads pre, post, and during the flight to enhance our exchanges and share our Body of Evidence. We now go all the way live with LIVE MUSIC and LIVE DANCE, and yes once again we will attempt to ride the Vjay wave with video remix and replay!
"In this day of continuous violence, injustices of race and gender we strive for an open place where our differences are celebrated as much as our similarities. We move beyond our geographic boundaries our aesthetic differences, and cultural specifications, and the mainstream media approvals to connect creatively and freely across our divides ALL OF THEM!" Marlies Yearby
