Digital artist Klaus Obermaier, conductor Marin Alsop and the London Philharmonic Orchestra create a 21st century realisation of Igor Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring. As the London Philharmonic Orchestra play Stravinsky's driving, rhythmic score live, a single dancer, Julia Mach, performs on stage. Working with interactive designers from the Ars Electronica Futurelab, Obermaier creates a form of cyber choreography where performers and technology interact to create a completely new perception of the body. The audience experience fascinating distorted visual effects by wearing 3-D glasses, as real-time movements combine with virtual spaces and the dancer's body appears to deconstruct, morph, multiply and engulf the audience. Stravinsky's powerful music dictates the choreography, as well as the subsequent 3D projections. Philip Glass' Prelude from Akhnaten and Edgard Varese's urban masterpiece Arcana complete this evening of surprise and innovation. A production of Brucknerhaus Linz and Futurlab/Ars Electronica.Performers Julia Mach (dancer).
