workshop description

Contemporary dance and interactive digital media
Choreography/concept/images: Anne Holst & Jean-Marc Matos
Interactive design, light and sounds: Scenocosme (Grégory Lasserre & Anaïs met den Ancxt)
Created with and danced by Marianne Masson & Mario G. Sáez
A very free, poetic and bitty adaptation of the classical tale « The Beauty and the Beast ».
The energy of the physical contacts between the dancers induces the music and lights in real time, via a customized tactile costume.
Video images are created live by the dancers on stage (landscape of objects, mobile camera)
