Miroirs - Chimin Hsieh, Sean Ferguson, Annie Luciani

Wednesday, November 21st, Maison de la Culture - MC2:

"Miroirs" is a mixed performance for real and virtual choregraphy, electronics and cello. It mixes musical cello performance with a dance performances, a virtual choregraphy, and an interactive real time spatialisation of synthetic sounds by the cellist.

The artwork aims at exploring several "mirror" effects playing with each other :

  • mirror between virtual movements produced by simulation of virtual bodies and dance performance
  • mirror between real/virtual dances and the cellist's instrumental playing
  • mirror between the cellist's instrumental playing and the real-time control of sound spatialization
  • mirror between the voluntarily limited space of the performance of the dancer and the electronic spatialisation of the cellist's playing.
