This Mesmerising Pixel-Littered Performance Blends Technology and Dance

By Jamie Condliffe on at

Imagine layering a world of interactive digital pixels over the athletic, poised movements of dancers—and, actually, you get this. Put together by French dance company Adrien M / Claire B, this performance uses light projection technology to create an interactive world that doesn't get in the way of dancers yet enhances their performance.

Called Pixel, this video shows how the company's dancers interact with the illuminations—say, using an umbrella to ward off digital rain or riding wireframe models across the stage. It's a captivating performance, and one that ably demonstrates how powerful the application of technology can be for the arts. [Adrien M / Claire B via Mary Sue via Verge]
