Body Navigation

3 installations
3 duets
between wo/man and technology

Two dancers and their digital reproduction is the scenograph­ic frame of this humorous and emotional portrait of human re­lations.
Based on rules and structured in a game like manner, the per­formance makes way for a play­ful dialog between man, woman and the digital “footprints” they leave behind.

Body Navigation was produced by Danish Dance Theatre and premiered as a part of the per­formance “labyrinth” May 21st 2008 at K2 in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Choreography: Tina Tarpgaard
Video Design: Ole Kristensen and Jonas Jongejan
Dancers: Hilary Briggs & Luca Marazia and Laura Lohi & Nelson Smith

What was fascinating and impressive about the performance, was the total in­stallation experience for all the senses, and the feeling that the various different sound, light and movement landscapes, intertwined with each other.
