HUMAN CR-EDIT » BETWEEN VIRTUAL & PHYSICAL CHOREOGRAPHY
HUMAN CR-EDIT is the title of a series of dance performances that emerged from the collaboration between myself and choreographers Felix Burner & Augusto Jaramillo Pineda.
After completing conceptual plans for SPACE+SINEW, an application catering toward the digitally supported authoring of choreography, I prototyped tools of this speculative software to use with choreographers Felix & Augusto as they developed their individual dance pieces. My role began backstage (using digital tools to assist the choreographers in developing new movement qualities) and eventually evolved onstage (creating stage projections from animations rendered from motion capture data I collected from the dancers.) My work was therefore integrated into the artistry of the piece on many levels.
Although I worked extensively with Augusto and his dancers Magali Sander Fett, Frauke Scharf & Kossi Sébastien Aholou-Wokawui, I have chosen to show only photos from Felix's piece, "Creatures of Comfort", with dancers Tim Gerhards & Mimi Jeong. Performance video coming soon!
