As space is no longer confined in the physical realm, and reality is not necessarily linear. What are the constraints in movements in this spatial paradigm shift? How can the human body relates to one another in this simultaneous realities? From the bauhaus dances a century ago, how are movements evolving in these realms?
We explored this theme through a mixed-reality performance project with dancer/choreographer Qiuming He. The expression of spatial constraints is presented as elementary shapes, varying from cubes, pyramids to spheres. All these objects function to define the space.
Simultaneously, the dancer creates his own constraints and language to relate and react to each element’s form. Throughout the piece, the devised choreographic languages are recorded, and the dancer further interacts with his previous self-derived constraints.
