“Between” is a technoetic performance that seeks to explore consciousness and connectivity through digital, telematic, and spiritual means, embracing both interactive and psychoactive technologies. A special form of performance will be introduced into the choreography, which combines modern techno dance party movements with a traditional form of Chinese Taijiquan. The audience will simultaneously perceive two sets of visualization while exploring the underlying concept of “between”.
The concept of "Between" indicates to the ambiguous border line between male & female, physical body & metaphysical energy forms and organisms & machines. The dancing body is simultaneously translated into points cloud which shapes the silhouette of the dancer in a 3D space. Meanwhile, the galaxy system animating at the background is partially controlled by the movement of the dancer. For instance, the motion of the floating objects, the lightening of the 3D space are both influenced by the dancer. This reflects back to the mysterious link between human's physical body and human mind. Do our bodies (in this context, brain should be excluded) influence our mind (brain is here)? The digitalisation of the body blurs the distinctions between two genders as well as evokes the notion of disidentification. "Between" is navigating a spectrum of resonance between dancing body and active mind, using two distinctive visual effects to demonstrate the idea of longing for contigent fusion instead of separation.
