react

A dancing improvisation piece inside a reactive environment. The piece has been presented both as a performance (Onassis Cultural Centre. Athens, October 2014 & Quasi Studio. Athens, February 2013) as well as an interactive installation (Athens Video Dance Project. Athens, February 2014). A Kinect sensor captures the movement of the performer or the audience and the software generates real-time graphics reacting to the body movement.
