An interactive performance of music, dance improvisation, and audience participation.
Artists: Paula Guzzanti (dance artist), Tristan Clutterbuck (sound artist), Martin Devek (composer)
(Duration 15 mins)
I-Reflexescaptures the improvisational interaction of three performers: a solo dancer, a musician, and a sonic artist. The audience also participates through the mediation of their mobile phones. As the choreographic improvisation and original music composition evolves and loops, the soundscape of improvisation created between the audience and the musicians’ interaction merges, thus proposing new dynamics of movement for the dancer. In this performance project, ringtones trigger unplanned, reflex-like movements in the body, suggesting alternate terms of decision-making within dance improvisation practice.
