Steer exposes imaginary inner worlds through a fusion of biology and technology.
Movement is driven by the interplay of sound, visuals and light, interacting with and responding to sensors. We direct our focus and energy from the internal to the external world by modulating the speed and dynamics of our motion.
Through this movement, the performance establishes abridge to a dreamlike state and the hidden world of thought, manifesting it in reality. Steer considers the impact on humanity of the merging flesh and technology.
