Design Statement

Choreographer’s Concept
“This is a work of symbiosis. The movement and subject matter explore individuality in a situation where individuals can’t survive without the group……..
Designer’s Concept
The Design Concept emphasizes the interconnectedness between people and their environment.
The projected images of binary code serve as the only light source that rush through space and across the dancers' bodies to speak of a desire for connection.
In designing for Connection, I used eight LCD projectors to function as sidelights instead of Ellipsoidal instruments that are commonly used in dance lighting. My new technique is unique to the convention of dance lighting and allows me to design and change the shape, color, or animate my sidelights. This lighting method transforms the stage into an ambiguous space where the moving bodies constantly re-shape and re-evaluate its architecture.
