Concept / Music / Live-video-projection: Wen Liu & Marian Weger
Monster is a mixed-media performance for flute, live-electronics, one dancer and realtime-generated video projection. The movements of the dancer are recorded by a multi-camera-system, and re- projected onto his body at the same time. The basic idea of the composition is to enable the dancer to interact directly with himself, and thus, create a strongly immersive visual performance. In an experimental stage setting, an alchemistic laboratory is created, where diverse ingredients like music, dance and video are melted together in order to create a new being, which transcends the original matters from which it is constructed.
This video is a documentation of a live performance at the 21st of January 2012 in Semperdepot / Vienna.
