Equipped with wireless physiological sensors and thanks to an interactive system developed in collaboration with the Sport Sciences Institute at the University of Lausanne, the Music High School of Geneva, Future instruments and Biopac System Inc., the movements of the dancers are transformed in music creating the sound track of the piece.
In a sound “system” developed in association with composer Christophe Calpini, dancers explore a new relationship with their bodies “augmented” by this possibility of making sound, creating a performance that pulls no punches. By offering spectators the representation of a hybrid body, still inhabited by the emotion of human interactions, re-mapping the body once again shows how the language of art provides a means of exploring and enacting new alliances.
The compagnie linga receives the support of Ville de Pully, Ville de Lausanne, Canton de Vaud, Pro Helvetia – Swiss Arts Council.
