I’ve just polished up the multimedia projections on this new dance work for Dancers Dancing. I’ve been working with Judith Garay for years as a videographer and now as a projections designer.
For this show I’ve been using Isadora with Osculator, to allow Wii controllers in the dancers’ costumes to affect the projections. I’ve played with a little animation, and I have an infrared camera doing a some motion detection. It will be an awesome experiment for me and the dance, music, costumes and lighting are beautiful.
Please come and check it out!

The Fine Line ~ twisted angels explores in movement, sound and image how we experience, perceive, relate to and react to our internal and external worlds. Ephemeral, sometimes transformative, the moments between perceiving, sensing and cognition create a rich tapestry of somatic images. The work engages with the fragility of our existence and risks the deep and dark journeys necessary to project the internal experience directly onto the stage.
Since 1999 Dancers Dancing has mounted productions both in Vancouver and on tour. The company is known for its passion and technical excellence, and for reaching diverse audiences. The press has called the company “…truly exciting…” and a recent production “Bursting with energy from the moment the curtains open, this powerhouse of a show was a delight from beginning to end…” Artistic director Judith Garay has been choreographing professionally for over three decades starting in New York where The New York Times called her “A choreographer with a sure inventive touch” and more recently in Vancouver where The Georgia Straight said “Garay has an incredible ability to boil down relationships to simple gestures that are loaded with meaning.”
