In Make-a-dance, Clarinda Mac Low and Carolyn Hall create a participatory algorithm for dancemaking. They supply the parts, the audience supplies the sequence and timing, and the resulting dance surprises everybody.

Clarinda Mac Low started out working in dance and molecular biology and now creates participatory installations and events that investigate social constructs and corporeal experience. She is also executive director of Culture Push, an experimental organization that links artistic practice and civic engagement, and a medical journalist specializing in HIV/AIDS.
