Movement Lab


Yilin Li is a senior at Barnard College and a storyteller using movement as the medium. She is interested in investigating the unique language of movement and the diverse expressiveness of the body. Her previous research and practice focused on creative dance for children to enhance problem-solving skills. At the movement lab, she explores how VR environments can provide prompts for dancers to design partial (e.g., body articulation) and full range of movement (e.g., level changes, space awareness, weight shifts). She is eager to probe into the interplay between human and technology through the perspective of a dancer.
