One Hit Wonder is a ‘retro space’ where pop referents of the 90s and early 2000 are translated into body, choreography and movements reconverted and inspired by GIFs and Boomerangs, two of the most common forms of virtual communication today. One Hit Wonder is a choreographic investigation that looks into the influence music videos, songs and TV programmes had on the ways of dancing of the generations that grew up during those years and that are the same ones that today communicate using GIFs and other similar graphic formats.
