In a recent piece from the Adrian M/Clair B Company, La mouvement de l’air, the gesturing bodies of three dancers combine with projection and realtime responsive visuals to create surrealistic, immersive environments. The company reportedly works with IT tools designed especially for them.
In this particular work, computer-generated images are there “for the dancers to play with, making up a digital score performed live by a digital interpreter. The performance matches seemingly impossible visions: images look alive while bodies fly, defying gravity. The acrobatic and digital choreography outlines a body language that involves a new relationship to time, space and the whole world. Beyond looking for technical achievement, what matters is the attempt at creating a motion dreamscape by way of images.”
