interactive dance performance / VJ event / installation

In scanned V, dance forms the material of a visual process. Movement is digitalised and scanned producing a visual and acoustic dialogue between performance and live sampling. The media stage environment creates a condensed reflection of a performed choreography. With movements rendered painterly, scanned V connects dance and painting, the performing and the visual arts.

Part 1 (dance - scanned) The computer system scans the movement of the dancer, interprets the information in realtime and proejcts the resultant process. short movement sequences are recorded to disk which will be used later in part 2.

Part 2 (re - scan) An operator (VJ) resamples and reoganizes the recorded performance to form a final picture of the choreography.

A visual choreography revisitied in the observer's mind.

The Pioneer/ 2002/ Scanned V It was a remarkable fusion experiment of sophisticated electronic wizardry, with Germany?s Christian Ziegler and Kerala?s dancer-choreographer Jayachandran Palazhy??The memory it left was unforgettably luminous.
