Mixing dance and technology, Mesosphere connects movement with Kinect images in a performance piece with an interactive edge.
Dance, Kinect, graphics, music
Exhibited: Connecting the Dots, Vancouver
Working with: Maia Love, Darcy McMurray, Faye Mallett
The Mesosphere performance is an abstract investigation into the process of loss. A dancer moves through a landscape of projected trees, clouds, and pixelating images that respond to her movements. Melodic vibraphone music strikes a balance between a reflective dreamstate and a crying out of layered tones. The internal narrative of the performer evokes a feeling of loss restored through forgiveness with a freeing of self.
After the performance, audience members are invited to play in the interactive image environment. Mesosphere is performed one night only on September 9, 2011 in the downstairs multimedia room at the Waldorf Hotel.
