Audiovisual creations where gesture explains itself without words and where we can watch dance with the added value of the perspectives of a camera that rewrites the choreography.
IDN is a festival aimed at all audiences, lovers of the movement arts, those curious about the creative applications of new technologies and those interested in research into the visual and sound arts … not to forget the younger audiences and even very small children.
This is a wonderful opportunity to see Billy Cowie’s work a Scottish artist, choreographer and writer amongst other works.
He makes stereoscopic dance installations that give the impression to the viewer that they are sharing the space with live dancers. The works are projected videos and the audiences wear anaglyph or shutter 3D glasses.
Jenseits is a 12 minute dance solo/duet danced by Oxana Panchenko. It is based around Cowie's poem Beginnings and Endings –
Tango de Soledad is a five minute dance solo danced by Amy Hollingsworth.
T'ES PAS LA SEULE is three short dances presented in a looped stereoscopic installation. The dancer Mariana Di Silverio performs as a video projection with three exceedingly similar friends. Sometimes the four Marianas dance in unison and other times in canon. They dance to three French songs about a badger, a leopard and an eighteen meters high ant, in a highly energetic tempo and chewing gum at the same speed.
