This installation will invite audiences into proximity with a piece of choreography, to encounter the inner worlds, images, sounds and sensations that dancers experience in the performance of a moment of dance. Film, sound installation and virtual reality spaces alongside episodic live performance will illuminate the ‘expanded fields’ emanating from this dancing moment, inviting the viewer into an intimate perspective on the complexities of the dancers’ individual and shared experience as they move together. The creative team have worked with live performance, film, Motion Capture data and sound recordings of the dancers to produce an installation which enables the audience to enter into this intimate perspective on what it means to dance a piece of choreography. The audience can encounter the live performers in the gallery at specific times throughout the two days and between performances can explore the film, sound and virtual reality traces the dancers leave behind.
This project is proudly funded by the Arts Council and supported by the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance, University of Limerick, Limerick City Gallery of Art, Live Collision International Festival and Lightmoves Festival of Screendance.
