Pixels in the Closet performance Oct. 26-27

Friday Oct. 26th and 27th will be the premiere of a new collaborative piece between myself and Abby Man-Yee Chan, choreographer and dancer Cai Ying at the Atlas Center in Boulder, CO. Denver artist Nichole Hongchang and I worked together for additional video footage of her ink drawings on rice paper.

Abby and Cai Ying have spent the last few weeks here in Denver planning the project and working with me to write software for the performance. We are working on some interesting ideas about childhood, modern life and technology. I’ve designed a playable Chinese board game that can be played by moving around on a floor projected image of the board. In addition, we will have a kinect controlled musical instrument that the dancers can control by their body motions. The choreography is amazing and our rehearsals at Redline and Workspace have been very productive. Looking forward to seeing this at the wonderful facilities of the Atlas Center.
