Sydney Dance Company 'Anima' 2016

Collaboration with Rafael Bonachela and Sydney Dance Company, staged in the Roslyn Packer Theatre Sydney.

Directly echoing the dancers with whom they share the stage, visual projections are spirit-like echoes that extend beyond and outside the physicality of the bodies of the dancers, flooding the stage in radiant, vibrating chords of colour that render an inner emotional world large, exposed and brilliant.

This reactive accompaniment is generated through three dimensional scans that translate the expressive forms and gestures of the dancers' choreography into abstractions in which the dance is recognisable through motion rather than shape.
