Hélène Lesterlin & Frieder Weiss
USA/DE | 2010 | 45´ | Moving Media (World premiere)
Cinedans presents the world premiere of Darkling, a haunting real time duet for body and technology created by choreographer/director Hélène Lesterlin, interactive software engineer Freider Weiss and composer Stephan Moore. Darkling is a sonic and visual passage through the imaginative landscape of the medieval mind. Starting from fables passed through the ages, sprinkled with rumors of love and sea monsters, magic and ghosts, steeped in superstition and poetry, Darkling exists somewhere between solo performance, interactive digital technology and multichannel radio play. In a nether region of semi-darkness, the audience sits on three sides of an intimate play space that contains dim, flickering particles of light generated by the movement of one mysterious creature. All are enveloped by a living sonic environment of disembodied voices, music, stories and moving sound. Like Frieder Weiss’previous performance Glow (which was a huge success during the 2009 Moving Media evening at Cinedans) projections react to the dancer’s moving body.
