Virtually Physical

A Choreography for two dancers, two avatars and motion capture OptiTrack.

The work Virtually Physical triggers the intertwining of the Virtual and the Physical, questioning the real, and the imaginative. Two dancers movements are being transformed in real-time into vector-based avatars usind the motion tracking system Optitrack. The choreography triggers glitches and tries to expose the system to its constants – to provoke improvisations and queer body movements.

Developed in the frame of Digital Dance Lab and shown during the Temps d’Image Festival at tanzhaus nrw.
