"Ama is a silent film. It tells a story everyone can interpret in their own way, based on their own experience. There is no imposition, only suggestions.
I wanted to share my biggest pain in this life with this film. For this is not too crude, I covered it with grace. To make it not too heavy, I plunged it into the water.
I dedicate this film to all the women of the world."
"Ama est un film sans parole qui raconte une histoire que chacun peut interpréter à sa manière, selon son propre vécu, tout est suggéré, rien n’est imposé.
J’ai voulu mettre dans ce film ma plus grande douleur en ce monde. Pour qu’elle ne soit pas trop crue je l’ai enrobée de grâce. Pour qu’elle ne soit pas trop lourde je l’ai plongée dans l’eau.
Je dédie ce film à toutes les femmes du monde."

An interactive dance installation built during the 3day VR lab organized by Cinedans, Beamlab, DansMakers and Canon. With the use of TouchDesigner we build a framework to generate live interactive visuals based on motion analysis in realtime. With the use of the Kinect v2 sensor, movements are sampled and translated into a virtual 3D environment driving both visuals and sound.

this video is the teaser for the last part of the show called "Weaving Machine"
Chinese director Zhang Yimou who is best known for his movies "Raise the Red Lantern", "Hero" and "The Great Wall" but also for directing the opening and closing ceremonies of the Beijing Olympics returns to the theater stage with his concept perfomance "2047 APOLOGUE".
Zhang Yimou has unveiled his latest work at the National Center for the Performing Arts in Beijing. Based on Peking Opera "Sanchakou," "2047 Apologue" is breaking the form of traditional stage plays, combining Chinese folk art with the latest technology. The show aims to mirror reality, commenting on how science and technology are a huge part of life in the 21st century. The show consists of 8 parts, each combining a traditional chinese craft, music or dance style with modern high tech such as lasers, robots, drones and kinetics.
WHITEvoid was commissioned to create, program and direct the kinetic display for the last part of the show called "Weaving Machine". The 9 minute performance features 640 motorized LED spheres, an anchient chinese weaving machine and a modern dancer. German motor winch producer KINETIC LIGHTS provided the vertical hoist systems for the LED spheres and control software. Russian RADUGADESIGN animated a complementing video backdrop and CPG Concepts from Hong Kong provided the dance choreography for british dancer Rose Alice.
Лазер (Laser) is an experimental film starring renowned dancer Maria Kochetkova performing on an illuminated stage of laser light and fog. In a previous collaboration with director Tarik Abdel-Gawad (vimeo.com/96030980), Kochetkova danced within inches of a robotic camera precisely choreographed to capture her every move. In this film, Kochetkova navigates a world of floating light in a unique improvisation between dancer and environment.
