Cyber Chat Series (2009-2013)

These dance-for-camera shorts, created entirely using internet technologies, take inspiration from the Post Natyam Collective’s use of SKYPE to connect across distance.  Choreographed, written and performed by Sandra Chatterjee, Cynthia Ling Lee, Shyamala Moorty, and Anjali Tata, the series was developed through the Post Natyam Collective’s long-distance creative process in collaboration with filmmakers Sangita Shresthova and Prumsodun Ok.  The Cyber Chat series includes: Cyber Chat, Cyber Spat (2009); Cyber Chat Revisited (2010); Cyber Chat 2.0 (2011); and Yes to Each Other: A Cyber-Manifesto (2013).
