Twirling DUST Symmetrically

dance | media scenography | soundart | interactive installation | 30' | CHN/DE 2012

Two dancers, two stages, two media scenographies, one interactive dialogue - in between a distance of 1900 miles.

Using 3D-engines like the x-Box, a motion-capture-system and the internet a German-Chinese team of artists, musicians and informaticians are connecting two worlds: a new form of choreography.

The piece was first performed synchronous in Cologne and Beijing on September 14th and 15th 2012.
