‘Into another Body’ deals with the (digital) representation of a dancer and the dance movement. It investigates the connection between live dance, it’s digital representation and video projection. With (digital) representation comes the question of identity. Do we recognize ourselves in the representation? How does the movement look translated to water or smoke? Do we still recognize our action if it is represented in a few moving dots? In our piece the dance movement travels back and forth from projection to dancer and is embodied in many different forms.
To enable an instant interaction between dancer and projection we work with live video capture, processing it into images, and live music.
In dance, creating a sequence is a fundamental part of choreography. In ‘Into another body’ we investigate the dance sequence (in a digital form). Digital projection opens up possibilities for choreography in the realm of: repetition, time shift and multiplication. This shines new light on the choreographic practice and brings a new perspective on the dance material. The multi-perspectives on dance show the way to multiple interpretations of the movement.
