Avatar* is the research and interaction of
a moving body on and with an interactive virtual space. Throughout the
performance, the dancer’s body faces unknown situations and areas with which it
interacts in its decision-making process.
It is an interpretative and conceptual premise, the fact represented on stage, and the play our own avatar, which is the virtual representation of ourselves.
Avatar* is a solo dance in which the player is in constant dialogue with the software responsible for the different pre-programmed event narratives that reacts based on movements, gestures and attitudes detected through the screen by cameras that send position signals to the computer in charge of processing the data which then forwards them to the stage area in real time.
