PREMISE

a reinterpretation of isolation and identity in an age of technology. How do we renew ourselves? How do we face our own image? How is that image reinterpreted when processed through digital platforms? The various stages of the creative process for this project were isolated into individual parts: movement, editing, music, composing. During each artistic stage, only an echo of the previous process was fed to the next artist. Finally an echo of the accumulation of that process was fed to an AI specialized in colouring film. ~ An echo of reality interpreted by an algorithm. The dance itself followed this process by isolating each movement from the next. Borrowing from the notion of an echo, the choreography was a reflection of movement that arrived, was analyzed, scanned and then relaunched. Each gesture a close parallel to the past one but always morphing and developing.
