Pixel Mountain is a new physical theatre work created in collaboration with Korean artists for presentation at the Gwacheon Festival and Hi Seoul in Korea in September-October 2013. It is a 30-minute outdoor aerial and interactive projection work performed on one of Gwacheon’s iconic buildings and on the Seoul Museum of Art. Aerialists dance on the side of walls while real-time interactive projections respond to the dancers’ every move.
The work brings together Stalker Theatre’s trademark physical theatre style with cutting edge new technology to create a fully immersive and interactive performance. It uses interactive 3D image and audio technologies to dynamically revision public spaces in real time through synthesising live performance, immersive interactive image projection and audio scapes.
Pixel Mountain was commissioned by the Gwacheon Festival and the Hi Seoul Festival, and is supported by the Australian Government through the Australia-Korea Foundation and the Australia International Cultural Council, both part of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, and through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.
