Living Room is the result of a process in Recoil Performance Group where we wanted to step back a little bit and look at what we did at Frost. The setup has many similarities, but it’s still a very different performance because of the years in-between. It’s a performance of an hour with 3 dancers on stage, and a video scenography that is evolving during the whole performance. Most of the video scenography is made of a polygon world that in the beginning of the performance is being generated, and slowly during the performance is being crumbled and manipulated with by the dancers live, and is going from a static cold world into a mysterious dynamic world where the dancers are closely connected to the living scenography. My role was designing and implementing the video scenography and tracking.
The performance won the Reumert (the biggest theatre price in Denmark) for best dance performance of the year. The performance is going on tour spring 2014 in Denmark.
