Behavorial Patterns, a dance performance by Marc Koehler Architects

Behavorial Patterns, a dance performance by Marc Koehler Architects

This interdisciplinary project explores the interaction between dance, motion graphics, light and music in a live performance.

The collaboration across choreography, spatial design, and dynamically-generated graphics explores a dialogue between dance and its projected image, registered by a camera from a bird’s-eye perspective, revealing the patterns underlying the choreography of Juanjo Arques.

In creating new modes of performance and representation for the global century, Arques, Marc Koehler Architects and Sticky underscore the role ballet plays as a model and metaphor for social behaviour. Both the choreography and the specially designed motion-tracking effects were inspired by complex networks of movement and interaction related to the contemporary city.

Behavorial Patterns will premiere April 29th at 20:30, and will also go through Friday 1st and Saturday 2nd of May, at the Het Nationale Ballet. You can order tickets here.
