The Theatre of Shadows

A 6-hour media performance and stage for ARMAXXII. Mutabor, 2022

Three emotional messages —  trust, energy, feeling —  are revealed during a 6-hour media performance, a diffusion of abstract forms created by overlapping videos, the energy of performing bodies, shadows and lights within a gigantic kaleidoscope. 

Trust, energy and feeling were at the core of 2 weeks of movement research by the dancers before being expressed in a final choreography. All the creators wanted to know how the abstract cross-media performance affected the participants, on both an individual level and as a part of the whole body in the club space.
