Proximity Interactive (2016)
Proximity Interactive invites you to shape space using your own body. Performed initially by Australian Dance Theatre to live audiences, this work was created by Artistic Director Garry Stewart, with video effects developed by French video engineer Thomas Pachoud.
As you move your body in front of the screen, the real-time video effects position you as the active participant – wilfully generating a world of magical effects and drawing the movement of your body in space.
The negative space between viewers is materialised, expanding and contracting as we occupy the room. Participation is at the core of this project and through this work we are encouraged to enter into a choreographic mode.
Directed & conceived by Garry Stewart
