Spectacular Interactive Dance Performance Using Projection Mapping
“We’re living in an age where technology is a staple of our lives. We function through the use of technology on a daily basis and numerous branches of the art community have embraced this fact, incorporating it into their work. Now, even dance has welcomed the power and immersive quality of the digital age. Interactive new media design company Ultra Combos has teamed up with Taiwanese dance company Anarchy Dance Theater to produce an interactive dance experience that is a feast for the eyes.
The audiovisual performance titled Seventh Sense utilizes the practice of projection mapping to allow both the dancers’ and audience’s movements to be detected. The projected light reacts to all motion, accordingly. Every individual in the performance venue is a participant that contributes to modifying the visual spectrum of the room that ranges from soft ripples to visual space alterations.
Check out the video, below, to get a glimpse of the performance in action. Also, if you’re in Spain later this month, you will have the opportunity to see Seventh Sense in person at Centro Parraga on October 19th and 20th.
