BIONIC STEP

Nina Davies

 

​In the sixth episode, our co-host Nina Davies got into the artist’s seat, sharing her work ‘Bionic Step’, a ​twelve-minute ​fictional conversation with an academic whose research explores techno-faith, a new form of spirituality which attempts to understand human’s changing relationship with technology. In the episode Nina and Niamh discuss how this fictional dance called Bionic Step acts as a future version of the 1518 Dancing Plague in Strasbourg. Together they examine the changing functions of dance in the aftermath of ​TikTok and how ​technological advancements affect the creation and attention towards faith.
