Title: “Wojoud Wa Hodoud”
Implementation agent’s Name: Studio 8
Short Description: It is a duet dance creation created by two local dance artists, driven by the embracement of the multi-identity of their nature and the reconciliation of their feelings about their heritage. Notably, the dance making is independent from music. As a result, in performance, with experimental sounds and audio noises produced live with the dance movements, music is neither followed or rejected by the movements. The indeterminate or ‘chance’ aspect of the work is also explored as the performers dance through “sculptures” created by the manipulation of light and shadows in the performing space.
1)A dance performance
2)A large scale three-dimensional immersive work as the performance setting
3)An small scale art installation of the same concept from a different perspective
5)A booth* (optional)
In the design process of the set, techniques including learning from performance art, cardboard modelling, 3D modelling are used. After performer experience evaluation, further experimentations with material and technology were conducted, allowing more engagement and the possibility of designing choreographic sequences of light and shadow.
