Eternal Summer Storm
Eternal Summer Storm speculates on a future digital library of body movements or dance techniques that can be experienced beyond the audio-visual conventions of historical documentation. The project translates acoustic muscle vibration as sonic waveform, and maps it onto a different body in real time. The piece attempts to recreate legendary Japanese dancer Tasumi Hijikata’s Butoh dance choreography and experience in A Summer Storm (1973) from the only archival footage shot in Kyoto.
The project will be presented as a live interactive demonstration performance.
