Transmission

 

Touch, perception, surface, texture… the skin, the sensation is the largest of all our senses.

Transmission is a dance and technology experiment focusing on the sensory system. Letting the tactile take precedence over the visible and audible, the dancers listen and respond to their own sensory system and to each other. But also to electromagnetic impulses received through vibrators attached to the body.

In several layers Transmission is a dialogue between dancers and audiences communicating via remote controls, through invisible waves and touch at a distance.
