인터렉티브 댄스앤 미디어 퍼포먼스: APPARITION

APPARITION
An interactive dance and media performance conceived and directed by Klaus Obermaier, in collaboration with the Ars Electronica Futurelab, featuring Desirée Kongerød and Matthew Smith.
> What choreography emerges when software is your partner?
> When virtual and actual image space share the same physics?
> Where everything that moves on the stage is both interactive and independent?
> And any form, dancing or still, can be transformed into a kinetic projection surface?
With these questions as the starting point APPARITION takes interactive performance to another level through the creation of a unique stage work integrating live performance, sound, projection and an interactive system comprising real-time image generation and computer vision.

After Klaus Obermaier's dance/media works D.A.V.E. and VIVISECTOR, which have become a world wide success with its unique combination of body and video, APPARITION goes one step further:
Sophisticated interactive technologies release the performer from the determination of set choreography and generate the visual content in real-time. The goal was to create an interactive system that is much more than simply an extension of the performer, but is a potential performing partner.
Computational processes that model and simulate real-world physics create a kinetic space where the beauty and dynamics of the human body and its movement quality are extended and transferred into the virtual world.
These two main areas of research, the interactive digital system as performance partner and the creation of an immersive kinetic space, form the artistic framework for APPARITION.
Together with Desirée Kongerød and Matthew Smith, Klaus Obermaier reworked APPARITION for a resumption in Hong Kong 2006 and subsequent performances. It reflects the experiences of one year touring.
