Nancy Mauro-Flude AU - Dances with Her Shadow

The work is a gesture to a painting by Man Ray, Rope Dancer Accompanies Herself with Her Shadows (1916), and reflects a philosophical principle that the value of an object lies not in the object itself but in the mind of whoever creates the value. In this performance, as in the painting, the dancer is accompanied by not only her shadow but also her presence as it appears via live internet streaming.
