Australian Dance Theatre’s newest work Proximity premiered at the 2012 Adelaide Festival.

In Proximity Garry Stewart and Paris-based video engineer Thomas Pachoud (with the support of didascalie.net) worked in collaboration to create a dialogue for dance and real-time video manipulation. The work is primarily an investigation into the body’s interactive participation in the act seeing the world with reference to neurological body maps and the French philosopher Merleau Ponty’s phenomenology of perception.

Liberating the body from our everyday understanding of physics, Proximity is an immersive visual experience where the miniscule becomes massive, the singular becomes multiple and fleeting moments are suspended and elongated.

Choreographer Garry Stewart works with Paris-based video engineer Thomas Pachoud (with the support of didascalie.net) to create an astonishing dialogue for dance and real-time video manipulation. ADT’s nine phenomenal dancers train video cameras on each other to capture live, their ingenious physicality. The resulting effect is a breathtaking video panorama that upends the very nature of perception itself.

Kaléidoscope chorégraphique
Imaginez  : des danseurs qui se clonent, des mouvements qui se démultiplient, des illusions d’optique qui mettent en jeu les corps à travers toutes sortes de perspectives et de déformations… C’est Proximity, un spectacle né de la rencontre entre le chorégraphe australien Garry Stewart (directeur artistique de l’Australian Dance Theatre) et le vidéaste français Thomas Pachoud.
Tous deux créent un dialogue insolite entre danse et images vidéo manipulées en temps réel. Face à ces kaléidoscopes en perpétuel mouvement, les notions d’identité et d’individualité se distordent. Jusqu’à brouiller l’idée même de perception. Proximity interroge notre rapport aux images et aux mondes qu’elles permettent de créer. Façonnés de toute pièce par la technologie, ces drôles de mondes transforment le minuscule en majuscule, l’unique en pluriel. Et nous plongent dans une expérience visuelle éblouissante qui déplace tous nos repères.
Un rendez-vous incontournable de la saison présenté en co-réalisation avec la Cité des congrès.
