Pixels in the Closet
In a unique collaboration between Hong Kong dancer Abby Chan and Denver digital artist Bryan Leister, dance, digital images and sound tell a dark tale from childhood memories. Motion capture technology using infrared cameras, inverse kinematics recognition and Kinect software will allow Chan to control and create music in real-time through her dance movements. The combination of Chinese dance and cultural icons melded with the latest in digital game/controller technology and graphics promises to deliver a powerful theater experience.
