Beyond Lightscapes/ Marcus Doering, Lars Scheibner und André Bernhard. tanz:digital II [Making Of]
Dreharbeiten | 25.8.2022
The Beyond Lightscapes project takes virtual reality research to a previously unexplored level in the world of dance. The PMD-ART Productions collective, composed of Marcus Doering, Lars Scheibner and André Bernhardt, has in fact devised a technology that makes it possible to map and actively follow the dancers in real time: the video therefore does not take place in a separate dimension, but is attached to the dancers, it follows them and adapts to them, like a real costume made of light. The dancers’ movements give life to magnificent scenographies and suggestive visual effects, leaving us to imagine all the possibilities that an artistic communication between man and machine can open up.
In the context of tanz:digital II, the German Dance Film Institute Bremen is building a bridge between the artists and the public. In concrete terms, this means that “making-ofs” will be created for around 10 individual projects, preparing potential users, whether they are tech-savvy or not, for what to expect if they want to entrust themselves to one of the many new installations.
Tanz:digital II is funded by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media in the NEUSTART KULTUR programme, aid programme DIS-TANZEN of the Dachverband Tanz Deutschland.
