The research examines the role of live projection in dance performance. It aims to answer whether the integration of such technology induces a sense of visual cohesion; or, instead, serves as a source of visual confusion in the audience experience. In doing so, it also addresses Auslander’s assertion that ‘the addition of digital media projection to live dance means that audiences watch the projection and not the dancing body' (Quoted in Klich & Scheer, 2012, p. 105).
