I switched to modern & contemporary dance after I moved to New York. It opens a new window for me to look at dance, think about the underneath meaning of movement, and the relationship between movement, body, and life.
I have been working on some projects about digital dance performance and programmable choreography, exploring the relationship between technology and dance. Check my current work here: http://www.streamgao.com/?cat=4
