York Mediale – Alexander Whitley Dance Company: Strange Stranger
28 September 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 5 October 2018 @ 9:00 pm
Experience and explore the world premiere of Strange Stranger, an immersive performance created by acclaimed Sadler’s Wells New Wave Associate, Alexander Whitley.
Strange Stranger investigates the idea of presence and the right to be forgotten in the digital age. A performance by four dancers to Beatrice Dillon’s composition of driving and fracturing rhythms provides the initial data for the installation, placing a ‘shadow’ within the space for you to explore and interact with long after they depart. As you move through a maze of light towers, motion capture technology collects your kinetic data and adds a new layer, generating a unique and constantly evolving atmosphere of light and sound.
