“Utilising the latest in interactive video technologies a digital landscape is generated in real time in response to the dancer’s movement. The body’s gestures are extended by and in turn manipulate the video world that surrounds it, rendering no two performances exactly the same.” Chunky Move

Glow is an intimate, 26-minute virtuosic solo dance work that excited Melbourne critics and audiences with its magical ‘biotech’ evocation of the human body as an evolving creature. The work, created for Chunky Move by artistic director Gideon Obarzanek and German interactive software creator Frieder Weiss with music and sound design by Luke Smiles, offers audiences, looking down on the dancer, the chance to experience the very latest in the perceptual interplay between artist, technology and audience. Glow is part of The Studio’s program for the first half of 2007 which also includes Meow Meow, Unreasonable Adults, Yumi Umiumare and Antje Pfundtner.
