We are looking forward to Compagny Käfigs Pixel, performed on January 18th in Stadsschouwburg Utrecht and January 30th and 31st during Holland Dance Festival in The Hague.
We are constantly exposed to images, videos and digital media. Screens are everywhere. One only needs to walk down the streets of big capitals of some countries to imagine what will be the city of tomorrow: a large exposure to images which is now part of our everyday life. The Pixel project is born when I first met Adrien Mondot and Claire Bardainne and from the fascination I felt at that moment: it was just like I wasn’t able to make the difference between both the real and the virtual world and I rapidly decided to try a new association using those new technologies with and for dance.
How does the dancer perform in a space made up of illusions on a 3D-set, when video may byturns accompany motion as well as hinder it?
