OPEN STUDIO: Sound and Movement
Join Diane Wiltshire on Thursday 17 and Friday 18th August 2017 between 2:00pm—3:00pm at Dance4, iC4C2, Dakeyne Street, Nottingham NG3 2AR to experience SAM – translating intangible human interaction into form to explore the language of interaction and the dialogue of dance.
These free performances involve dancers with choreography playing a central role, aiming to emotionally engage the audience through movement in very close proximity to each individual audience member.
This work blurs the boundaries between the environment, the performers and the audience. SAM is a coded space which is different each time, because it is reacting to physiological data and the audience response to the dancers. There are specially designed wearable technologies, allowing the audience to feel the performative space and the intangible interactions of the inhabitants.
Audience members will be asked to stand in the space, they free to move around and if they wish can stop participating at anytime. The performance will be half an hour long and there will be fluctuating light levels as well as music generated from wearable devices.
(Suitable for 16+)
