In the interactive dance performance MIRA 6_89° MIRA combines inner and outer with visible and emotional spaces in an installation made of fragmented plastic body parts. Plastic covers – shrink-wrapped for eternity -show imprints of fleeting movements, of a fading moment.
Connected to sensors and micro controllers that are triggered by the live performer and dancer Dong UK Kim, a mesh of artificial body shells is created. Through this interaction between the objects and the performer the dancer acts as a musician at the same time, he operates the musical happening with the existing controller.
The plastic object represents places of memory, connection doors and memory shells between the immediate moment, the “Now” and different time frames, before, after and inbetween.
MIRA 6_89° combines object art, live performance and sound installation as well as sensory processes in a interdisciplinary dare and experience space. How do we communicate within this created space concept? How can an exchange, a collaboration between performer and audience be formed through this technology?
