Glow: Shape or be Shaped?

Kristin: Last week, we went to see Glow, a Chunky Move dance production presented within the Adelaide Festival of Arts. Glow featured a single dancer, illuminated by digital light effects that are generated in real time. At first it appears that the dancer controls the light, but as the piece continues and the movements become fearful and distorted, it appears that the light is manipulating the dancer. Do we control technology or are we manipulated by it?  Do we shape our future or are we merely shaped?
