Description:

Locus is an interactive, kinetic, and scenographic installation that acts as an interface for choreographic behaviours in the context of contemporary dance performance. The project explores implications of bodily interaction with built structures and how audience engagement can here be enhanced through notions of participation. The behaviours of the installation emerge via this dialogue: the performers affect the structure’s shape and the audience modifies the rhythm of the transformations.

An interactive process generating a dynamic, shapeshifting appearance of the physical installation underpins the emergence of participatory performance. As a scenographic and choreographic device, Locus creates affective and effective experiences through intentional and unintentional manipulation.
