Qualia is an experimental work around perception, an aesthetic experience which unfolds layers of sensations attached to the shape and movement of the human body. Distortions, time manipulations, obscurities and exposures suggest the subjective effects related to the perception of images and sounds.
The artistic approach is based on a thorough research on the interactions of the dancers, the camera, the lights and the scenography while leaving space for intuition. The digital work on images and sounds lifts the concept of dance to an augmented dimension where new potentialities are emerging.
