DIGITAL-MOVEMENT-PERFORMANCE: NEVER DID ME ANY HARM
NEVER DID ME ANY HARM
A Digital Movement Performance by
Force Majeure & Sydney Theatre Company
'Never did any harm' is a show that combines digital technology, movement and performance. Based on the novel 'The Slap' by Kristos Tsiolkas, explores the interrelationship between parents and children. What is very interesting for me is the use of bodily self-expression combined with digital devises. Movement is facilitated by different projections that contribute to give meaning to all different pieces and work not only as part of the scenario but sometimes as avatars.
It is particularly useful to see how actors, yet not dancers, are able to express and explore body movement without having had any dancing training.
What I learned from this project is how the use of digital technology facilitates bodily expression and can be used as a path to express, represents and projects emotions as a complementary devise, such as working with contrary movements of an avatar, or using an avatar on stage to interact with the actor's movement, giving feed-back in real time.
Idea: Maybe we could use this type of avatars projections to interact with sick children and explore bodily improvisation.
