Alissa is a dance artist who grew up in the shadow of Silicon Valley and is fascinated with technological innovation as a theme and as a tool. She is interested in the technological manipulation of images and how different technologies are unique forms that invite different possibilities of showing the dancing body. She is also interested in exploring the possibilities of non-linear time that video allows. She integrates video into her live performances and also turns video of live performances into stand-alone pieces.
