A collaboration of Digital Artist Chris Ziegler with Dancer Unita Gay Galiluyo and Composer Hugo Paquete.
Ovid's ‘pygmalion’ redefined - a body in morphogenesis. A solo performance, where the dancer uses haptic material and sensory sonic technology to create a digital "corps" of images and sounds through movement.
generates a visual and acoustic environment through movement. It focusses the view on the moving body.
A Dance in three parts:
The performance begins with the invisible "virtual" body. Movement can only be recognized through an interactive light costume. On the dancer’s body 8 iPads sense acceleration and an customized APP flashes when a joint moves. The light figurine develops shape and character.
The dancer body fills another’s body skin. A glowing body animates the space. This scene is about body, puppet and puppeteering.
In the third part of the trilogy the dancer’s interest goes towards his own body seen as a sculpture. He moves in a cocoon, casting light on his skin from within. The dancers outside the cocoon plays with acoustic recordings of his own breathing, performing with the sensor devices from the first scene, concluding a circle of referring to past events of the performance.
uses complex electronic media technologies, simple flash lights and material interactions with costumes, generating a haptic, visual and acoustic imaginative space through movement.
