Why a tour?
It's really quite simple.
Following the success of the 4x60 Tour, we wanted to see even more of the world and meet even more interesting folks, artists, educators along the way.
Furthermore, Sean Clute has become a United States Fulbright Scholar and will be researching contemporary audiovisual techniques as a Resident Artist at the amazing MuseumsQuartier. He will actually be residing in the museum, while the rest of DV sets up shop just down the street in a District 9 Apartment.
From our home base in Vienna, DOUBLE VISION will be venturing to other cities in Europe to present work and lectures on intermedia performance practices. Please follow the city links to keep track of what we're doing and we'll keep updating the dates below.

Pauline Jennings :
Pauline is a contemporary dance choreographer interested in prophesizing and questioning the future of humankind through movement. The society she sees is one that is evolving with exciting technological advances, an onslaught of media pushing ideas and products, and in-debt zombie workers afforded little time for reflection and critical thought. Pauline believes that advances in life-extending tools, online communities, media conglomerates, and cybernetics will transform the definition of human nature and should not be permitted to do so unnoticed or unquestioned. Her work attempts to viscerally capture the excitement, confusion and fear that accompany this rapidly changing society. Through her work, she hopes that viewers will have an opportunity to reflect upon and take a more active role in determining their own evolution.
Since 2003, Pauline has completed over 70 performances involving collaborations between dancers, musicians, video artists and technologists. Her choreography has been performed in festivals and showcases nation-wide, including San Francisco, Los Angeles, Brooklyn and Albuquerque. Her choreography for Disembodied Head #2 was filmed for national distribution as part of PBS' Meaning of the 20th Century series. She has both performed and presented work at such venues as the SF Museum of Modern Art, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, ODC Theater, and Dance Mission Theater. Pauline currently is a Visiting Artist for the Mills College Dance Department's Repertory Dance Company and has particpated in conferences held at the University of California at Berkeley, California State University, Mills College, Brighton College (UK), and Doncaster College (UK).

Caitlyn Carradine :
Caitlyn Carradine, born and raised in Los Angeles, is a choreographer and contemporary ballerina whose work transcends various venues, mediums, and roles as she feels the spirit of her native home is what guides her practice. She trained at and graduated from Vienna Austria's Wiener Staatsoper Ballettschule (1998-2001) and danced in productions at both the Wiener Staatsoper and Volksoper Wien before returning to Los Angeles, California in 2002 to establish her company: Los Angeles Contemporary Ensemble (LA.C.E.) an avant-garde experimental dance theater. LA.C.E. has produced 25+ original evening length dance productions including "dancing with paints" which was used to create a billboard for Hollywood Boulevard. L.A.C.E. resided in the abandoned portion of the Camarillo State Hospital from 2003-2006 and since has been a nomadic company most recently moving to Vienna, Austria where it will serve as a collaborative production base. Collaborating with DOUBLE VISION in Europe has come as a synchronistic and natural next step and it is all very thrilling to help represent California halfway around the world.

Dorsey Dunn :
Los Angeles-based artist Dorsey Dunn’s work in sound, text and image, in the form of installations, performances and written and recorded works, is an extended meditation on the perimeters of language, the movements of silence, and the vagaries of comprehension. Languages, spoken and sounded, in their multiplicities of gesture and meaning, are a primary concern, as are considerations of memory, spatial presence, and will. Dorsey regularly exhibits and performs his sound-led installations and music in the US and internationally. He has received invitations to residencies and festivals around the world, most recently to the media arts lab TESLA in Berlin; Jack Straw New Media Gallery in Seattle; Festival International de Arte Digital, Rosario, Argentina; MusicAcoustica in Beijing; and Is Arti in Vilnius and Kaunas, Lithuania. He has scored and produced music for film, theater, and dance, as well as for a variety of multimedia performances. Previously, he edited an international literary magazine, Trafika, based in Prague and New York. He was educated in New York City.
