So what exactly is a human dance tunnel supposed to look like?

Electronic dance wizard Dan Deacon laid out his vision, and it looked something like this: from the front of the Budweiser Stage to the top of the concrete staircase leading to the Comcast Theatre bandhshell, hundreds of B.O.M.B. Fest attendees stood in parael rows, locking hands above their heads as a stream of people shimmied through the mass.

But just before kicking off the audience-wide dance party, the pied piper of blip had just one more rule: “Safety first, everybody! Safety first!”

Deacon, whose choreographed, synth-spastic boogie processionals have earned him legions of head-smashing fans, bases his idea on a unique philosophy: the wall between artist and audience should be torn down.

“When I perform solo, I’m playing back and forth with the audience,” said Deacon, who performed at B.O.M.B. Fest Saturday. “It’s not about watching me; it’s about the audience watching each other and letting lose.” [CT News]

Dan Deacon continues to prove that no venue is safe from his human tunnel. Like he did recently at the Museum of Natural History, he successfully made the tunnel at the Comcast Theatre in CT on Saturday. More pictures of the games below…
