Moving Arts East Workshop

Dancers took part in an improvisation workshop and performance using an interactive sound and light sculpture.
Although the time available was limited, the dancers were able to explore and interact with a rotating light which allowed them to decide when and how much sound was produced. Their costumes reflected a scanning light beam and modulated the volume of an electronic music composition embedded in the light beam. The intimacy of the resulting performance was as intriguing as it was challenging to the MAE audience. It was a useful experience from which a further development has been made, with a more subtle part of the visible light spectrum in the near infra red being used to illuminate the dancers body shapes.
