Reward on Moozar : reward-my-music.com/9503 The Changing Room (2004)
In their changing room, three women leave behind the territory they know for another place, beyond what they know. A mirror becomes a screen for their mutations, a curtain a technological frontier and their table a platform for the puppetry of the virtual. Through a series of changing viewpoints audiences are lead to encounter the epic within the everyday, as a haunting virtual presence extends, mirrors and distorts the performers' behaviour. Animating the threshold between the virtual and the real, the changing room is an intimate exploration of our digital evolution.
The Changing Room is a collaboration between choreographer Carol Brown and architect Mette Ramsgard Thomsen. Carol Brown Dances last appeared in Dance Umbrella in 2002 with Nerve and in 2001 with Machine for Living. Brown is renowned for her cross-art form collaborations with visual artists, photographers, filmmakers, architects and sound designers. Carol Brown is currently a NESTA Dream Time Fellow and her awards include a 1999 Jerwood Choreography Award and the 2004 Ludwig Forum Prize for Innovation.
Reward on Moozar : reward-my-music.com/9502 Electric Fur (2002)
A screen based installation created by an intermedia collaboration between choreographer Carol Brown, videographer Abigail Norris and photographer Mattias Ek. In Electric Fur, dancers Jo Fong, Catherine Gardner and Carol Brown are viewed in a remote environment, a perspective-less void, animated by waves of sensation and memory. An innovative screen design by Ed King creates a series of deep surfaces which together with the subtle warping of Jerome Soudan's sound design create a multi-sensory space of interaction stretching the boundaries of dance on screen.
Electric Fur is an Arts Council of England Capture commission.
