Performance Portrait: Live is an interactive, multi-channel video installation that focuses on the symbiotic relationship between performer and spectator. Following on a recent residency in which durational videos were created of individual performers embodying single gestures while holding the gaze of the spectator, the creative team will use their time at BRIC to experiment with connecting life-sized versions of these videos through network of Kinect 2 sensors to build an interactive and responsive environment. Directed by choreographer Yanira Castro, with an audience environment by Kathy Couch, interaction design by Stephan Moore, video by filmmaker Julie Wyman and performers Anna Azrieli, Leslie Cuyjet, Peter B. Schmitz and David Thomson.
