CherryBone Project for interactive dance and music -2007- 2008

Cherry Bone shows multiple viewpoints related to alimentation and the body.

Concept: With different choreographic, technologic, visual and sound treatments, the four scenes of Cherrybone are articulated like concentric circles around a central and more abstract thematic core that works as a nourishing mechanism.

The human body faces this thematic in a double perspective: on one side in relation with the action of eating and the different cultural ways of eating; on the other side in relation to the mechanism of nutrition and its dysfunctions.

Description : Three interpreters (a dancer, performer and a musician) will lead the audience through different situations around the theme, wearing different kind of sensors that will capture physical and bio-physiological data that will help them creating an interactive dramatic work.

Cherry Bone is based on a structure of relations between stage space, human body on stage and the audience.

The stage is an organic and sensible space that receives data of the actions taking place through camcorders and different systems of wireless sensors.

The captured data will be analyzed by software to interpret, for example, the space situation of performers or the physical distance between them. Thus performers can dialog with the digital information to build three-dimensional, sound and videograhic environment in real time linked to the thematics of nourishing and body.
