MOMENTS | Mash-up: “Pixel”, A Dance Performance Incorporating Interactive Digital Projections
We’ve curated the best of digital age-inspired creativity—from user-generated content, mash-ups, and remixes to collaborations between multi-disciplined makers.
“Pixel” is a digital-era dance piece created by French choreographer Mourad Merzouki and digital designers Adrien Mondot and Claire Bardainne, known collectively as Adrien M / Claire B. The piece was also done in collaboration with hip-hop choreographer Cie Kafig. The hour-long piece is “a work on illusion combining energy and poetry, fiction and technical achievement, hip hop and circus.” The dance performance at Maison des Arts de Créteil France on November 15th and is currently on tour.
Merzouki was inspired by hip-hop and circuses, and when choreographing the piece, he sought to balance the different elements that come with live dance performance and digital art and technology. “We wanted to start a conversation about the synthesis between digital projection and the real body of the dancer,” says Merzouki.
So watch the video of “Pixel” below to get a glimpse at the incredible digital interactive dance performance.
