Floaters is a kinetic laboratory of choreography, video and sound directed and created by Christine Bonansea. Floaters was developed over the course of two years, experimenting and performing variations internationally . Improvisation became integral to adapting the piece for different performance contexts. In every space, the audience is contained in the center of an environment made unstable by sound, projected light, and surrounded by the bodies of performers.
The tone of the pieces is transformed by music scored and performed by Voicehandler, who create artificially perceived and illusory tones. These eerie sounds are amplified using induction coil microphones, which explore electromagnetic fields, mirroring the inner sounds of the nervous system – our body's' own electrical field.
This will be the first performance of the complete Floaters triptych.
