225 BLURRING THE BOUNDARIES - INTERACTIONS BETWEEN CHOREOGRAPHY, DANCE AND NEW MEDIA TECHNOLOGIES SCOTT DELAHUNTA The connections between dance and technologies can be looked at from five fundamental perspectives: • Historic: Separate but often overlapping contemporary arts practices; modern/ post-modern dance having evolved alongside the electronic and media arts • Creative: An artistic tool in particular in the form of the digital com- puter; technology integrated into a variety of genres such as music, film, graphic arts, etc. and to an increasing

Towards

and the virtual field supported by new media gadgets, such as smartphones (Frith, 2015), change the content of our experiences and consequent- ly the functions of the body. Thus the body—both in its cultural and biological un- derstanding—seems not to represent a guarantee for individual limits anymore. Instead, it disrupts them, affirming itself as plastic (Mansfield, 2017, p. 355) by its very incorporation of new material elements and constant expansion. Hence one may acknowledge it as a malleable texture with negotiable boundaries, a terrain to be newly

These virtual worlds

, access is still an issue for the global south, as well as for marginalised com- munities throughout the world. We also show how gender inequalities and hierarchies are reproduced in digital spaces, demonstrating that even where women have equal access, possibilities for discrimination and oppression remain. We conclude by arguing that there remain important tasks for scholars of technology and new media, namely to monitor the material and symbolic significance of new technological developments as they emerge and to examine the ways in which they may reflect and

) community and analyse its visibility within the apps. By close reading the two case studies, we examine poten- tial “smartphone communities” in their temporal dimensions, as well as their demands and promises of participation. In order to gain a perspective that is neither adverse to new media nor celebratory of assumed participatory community phenomena, the article aims to interrogate the examples regarding their potential for individua- tion/dividuation and community building/dissolution. In doing so, the games’ conditions and the impositions placed on the players
