Floating in Dancing Lights

REFRESH#3, Sept 17, 2020, 19:00, Immersive Arts Space

Floating in Dancing Lights is a mesmerizing dance performance featuring a dancer and a flying swarm of objects, illuminated by means of Spatial Augmented Reality. The performance represents the tentative culmination of an internal project of the Immersive Arts Space which offers a do-it-yourself framework for designing and building remotely controllable helium drones.
In a workshop prior to the conference REFRESH #3, a group of students will build their own helium drones and explore different aspects of the framework – from sculpting their own balloon shapes to choosing an appropriate propulsion technology to designing a scenography and light setting with the help of projection mapping. Curated by Martin Fröhlich and Denise Lampart, some of the results of the workshop will become part of the performance.

Crew:
Martin Fröhlich (project lead), Max Kriegleder (robotics, motion control), Roman Jurt (rapid prototyping, construction), Serena Cangiano (ideation).

Performance:
Denise Lampart, (choreography), Naomi Khamihigashi (dancer), David Peña (assistant to choreographer), Ben Vorhar (costume design), Luca Magni, Eric Larrieux (sound).

Floating in Dancing Lights is part of the artistic research project Helium Drones.
