What does it mean to be a creator, and what does it take to make (or remake) an art work in and for the digital age? The Chapter House is an interdisciplinary dance piece featuring intricate choreography by Zoi Dimitriou coupled with video installation by Mark Coniglio, inventor of Isadora software and co-director of the group Troika Ranch.
This new perspective-shifting collaboration is a seductively ambiguous examination of the acts of performing and documentation. Dimitriou's aim is to expose the processes and mechanics of creation by using digital media to record, re-construct and re-enact a live performance. In The Chapter House she's inviting you to gaze back at the body of her work and discover how meaning can be revealed and transformed...
