A meeting between Art-Science and Dance

Metabody_Toulouse is a collaborative platform for experimentation, critical thinking, and presentation of artistic works, either finished or in progress, which proposes transdisciplinary exchanges between artists, scientists, programmers, inventors, researchers, philosophers, etc.

This platform, initiated by the K. Danse Company in Toulouse since 2013, in the frame of its artistic and technological research, is the local extension of the European funded Metabody project.

For the 2017 edition, Metabody_Toulouse presents various works articulated around dance and related scientific research, and developed by local, national and international partners. Specifically, the WholoDance and RCO projects.

RCO, interactive choreographic performance

RCO is an interactive participatory dance performance, with variable scales, which unfolds according to the physical behavior of audience participation and their reactions instructed via their smartphones.
Audiences, as they desire, trigger rules which they discover little by little.

A unique choreography which adapts itself to the participants, the architectural spaces and the number of dancers-performers.

RCO is laureate of the call for proposals Phare 2017, the Diagonale Paris-Saclay.

Dancers-performers: Ambre Cazier, Izaskun Insausti, David Mazon, Mario Garcia Saez
Technological collaboration: Arnaud Courcelle (main designer of the interactive set via mobile phones) and Jean-Philippe Rivière (LRI laboratory)
Costumes:  Aline Pérot
