Isabella Bordoni and Roberto Paci Dalò
A different conception into performing arts and interaction
worlds. Where both text and 'corpografie' (bodygraphies) are performed by the
same interpreter. Her mouvements captured by a videocamera and triggered through
STEIM's interactive softwares allowing a realtime editing totally based on the
live performance. This means no pre-produced images. Just living materials created
through the performance.
> Sound and music
is also live, developing innovative electronica where a study has been made into
frequences world. Playing around with low sounds and the acoustic of the space.
Euripides' Bacchae is token and scanned as source material. The Greek text is
sampled and performed live through electronics.
In between the digital connection approaching the cyberspace space of the data
transfer. From stage into computer, from computer on the screen, from the screen
back to the performer. A triangle of possibilities.
Scanning Bacchae has been created by Isabella Bordoni
and Roberto Paci Dalò for the Ars Electronica Festival 97 and premiered
in a hangar at the Linz docks. The performance is part of a pluriennal investigation
between classical tragedy sources and the dramaturgical use of new technologies
and interactive softwares/hardwares.
The presentation of Scanning Bacchae at Baltoscandal
2000 is a special event with the participation of artists from Estonia. They'll
work with the Giardini Pensili's team for a period of time before the presentation
on June 21, 2000.
