Rehearsal footage of the work Piano & Dancer recorded at the Zurich University of the Arts (ZHDK). Piano&Dancer is an interactive stage work for a dancer and a mechanical piano. In this work the piano becomes a sonic extension of the dancer's body activity. The physical gestures and movement qualities of the dancer are translated into music in real time by the instrument. The piano embodies the expressivity of the dance expanding it to another sensory modality.
Piano & Dancer uses technology developed in the European project H2020 DANCE
focused on research and development forms of sensory substitution
