Matter is the third part of a series in which Liesbeth Koot works on the combination of dance and film/new media. The first two parts resulted in short experimental films, this third and last part in a live performance. The performer is, through the use of tracking software, translated into moving image and sound. Because of this, her environment becomes a sort of alter ego.
The idea for Matter originated in Ovid's 'Metamorphosis', a poem that is based not in fysical reality but in mythology. Ovid describes a long series of transformations.
Matter is made by Liesbeth Koot in collaboration with Inari Salmivaara, Lucas van der Velden, Gideon Kiers, David Kiers and Birgit Bachler.
