Ghost Dancing

A group dancing, surrounded by light and projected images.


Live Processing and Ghost Dancing

Created for Moogfest 2016, featuring lead artists Martin A. Brooke and Thomas F. DeFrantz.

What happens when we dance out of phase with ourselves? When thoughts and reflection become visualized by a moving, shifting robotic projection
object? And when that object answers back around questions of gentrification, climate change, and political mobilization? This installation allows performers and audience-interactors to create dance-gesture sequences that become part of an expansive archive. In the performance, dancers and musicians create unexpected sequences of sound and motion that suggest the haunting of previous dances and others who have passed through the space long ago, and possibly, in the time to come.
