Merce Cunningham MinEvent, 2011

 

Exploring the interfaces between body, motion, gesture and projected image, this work enables dancers to become "brushes" serendipitously creating a painterly composition through performance. The real-time reactive graphics system that I created for this recent re-staging of a Cunningham Mini-Event utilizes expressive artificial intelligence to engage Cunningham's aesthetic principles of indeterminacy to complement and, at times, amplify the dancers' movements on stage.

Like all Cunningham Events, choreography, sound, lighting, costume, and video were designed by different artists in isolation from each other and purposefully only combined at the time of performance.
