attached

Attached, revised from its original version in 2011, was presented by Core Project at EMP Collective in Baltimore. “How can you create an intimate connection with a complete stranger?” This second version of Attached involved locating a partner who lives in Baltimore, someone I had never danced with. After some communication about the score of the dance plus minimal rehearsal, we performed two rounds of this duet, incorporating the same Lycra sheet and vocal feedback loops from the original version of the piece.

Wearable performance device created with an Arduino Liilypad Xbee, conductive fabric, Max/MSP and wireless microphones.

 

OUT ON THE LEDGE

Out on the Ledge is a site-specific, projection-mapped video installation for four dancers in four windows. It takes the inhabitants of the building and incorporates them into its architecture, exposing four wild characters ready for a dance party.

A collaboration with Alex Vessels.

 

Broken Landscape

Created while in residence at EMPAC, this interactive video projection bends according to the dancer's placement in space. Programmed in Isadora.

 

Glitch

Dancers move through grids and projected silhouettes of themselves. Programmed in Isadora. 

Created in collaboration with Drew Burrows and Sarah Holmes.
