MEI-BE WHATever / Mei-Yin Ng is a New York City-based dance ensemble fusing media technologies with contemporary movement. Exploring relationships between the body and technology, investigations culminate in the staging of multimedia events. Residencies and Awards include HERE Artist Residency Program, New York, NY (2012) and Best Dance Film at the Dance for the Camera Festival (2010). MEI-BE WHATever will be working on Lost Property Unit, a multimedia dance performance that explores the seduction, power, and limitations of contemporary technology through, or in the absence of, physical connection.
