In the Internet age, dance evolves …

The LXD (the Legion of Extraordinary Dancers) electrify the TED2010 stage with an emerging global street-dance culture, revved up by the Internet. In a preview of Jon Chu’s upcoming Web series, this astonishing troupe show off their superpowers.

 My thoughts on this
The world is chaotically ordered. The fusion of contemporary dance genre and classical music is so different it works perfectly together. The world of today is owned, ruled and reigned by mechanism, precision, kids and kings. Everybody owns an avatar and we live another life aside the real one, we even like that one better.
I don’t know, I got chills watching this performance. To me it’s story-telling. It shows us, where we are going. It fights our battles. It’s a mirror reception of us – of what we want to be, but can’t organize it well. And of course we just like to step back and watch it. Yeah, we’re big brothers, reality show lovers, paparazzis of modern age.
I love The LXD.. it’s real… it’s surreal… regarding stories and dancing perormance…
