Moving Target was first performed by Charleroi/Danses on April 27.1996. The work was been created by the choreographer Frederic Flamand and the artists/architects Elizabeth Diller and Ricardo Scofidio. The Academy of Media Art has contributed with the collaboration of artists Paolo Atzori, Ivar Smedstad, and Kirk Woolford. Their work was developed as an investigation of the schizophrenic body in the architectural space created by Diller and Scofidio.
The unorthodox construction of the "Moving Target" set allowed them to explore movements of bodies unbounded by physical and virtual space, blurring internal, and external spaces through a combination of digital effects and live computer graphics and allowing the dancers to freely shift between real, dream, virtual, and material conditions.
This video shows the development of the interactive "Virtual Cage" developed by Kirk Woolford in collaboration with Diller+Scofidio and the artists from the Academy of Media Arts, Cologne
