A collaboration of Chris Ziegler with Dancer Unita Gay Galiluyo and Composer Hugo Paquete.
Ovid's ‘pygmalion’ redefined - a body in morphogenesis. A solo performance, where the dancer uses haptic material and sensory sonic technology to create a digital "corps" of images and sounds through movement. corpus generates a visual and acoustic environment through movement. It focusses the view on the moving body.
A Dance in three parts:
The performance begins with the invisible body - an abstract figurine. Movement can only be recognized through lights.
The dancer body floats into another skin. A body animates the space.
In the third part of the trilogy the dancer’s focus is on himself. He moves in a cocoon, casting light on his skin from within transforming his body into a sculpture.
corpus uses interactive technologies, simple flash lights and material interactions, generating a haptic, visual and acoustic imaginative space through movement.
