Three interpreters (a dancer, a performer and a musician) will lead the audience through different situations around the thematic, wearing several kind of sensors that will capture physical and bio-physiological data in order to create an interactive dramatic work. Cherry Bone is based on a structure of relations between stage space, the human body on stage and the audience.
The stage is an organic and sensitive space that receives data of the actions taking place through video cameras and different systems of wireless sensors. The captured data will be analyzed by software to interpret, for example, the space location of the performers or the physical distance between them. Thus, the performers can dialog with the digital information to build three-dimensional, sonic and videograhic environment in real time linked to the thematics of alimentation and body.
During 2007 we worked on an early stage of CHERRYBONE , which grew from the process of research, testing and feedback activities. Among the activities, Kònic thtr scheduled for 2008 a series of OpenLab/show.
