Chunky Move/Gideon Obarzanek (Australia) 
Thursday & Friday December 3 & 4, 7 & 9 PM
$15 / $10 / $5

Conceived as a "biotech fiction" by Australian choreographer Gideon Obarzanek and interactive software creator Frieder Weiss, Glow transforms a solo dancer into a mutant figure both sensual and grotesque. As she slides and thrashes across a white floor, her form generates a constantly shifting digital habitat of projected light. Her smallest gestures are captured by an overhead tracking system, while interactive video technology creates motion graphics that shift in real time in response to her movement.
