Collaboration of Digital Artist Chris Ziegler with Dancer Unita Gay Galiluyo and Composer Hugo Paquete.
 
Ovid's ‘pygmalion’ redefined - a body in morphogenesis. A solo performance, where the dancer is using digital, visual, sensory sonic and also material interactions to create a corpus of images and generated sounds.
 
corpus is about the moving body as a visual and acoustic phenomenon. It reveals only the least necessary to create a visual and sonic poetry, which gives the viewer space for imagination.
 
The dance has three parts as a trilogy: The performance begins with an invisible body, dancing in a interactive kinetic light costume. In the second part the dancer is feeling and filling another’s body skin. The dancer’s own skin is partially exposed inside a cocoon of the third part. The cocoon tears apart, the dance concludes with elements of the first parts, where dance become a entirely acoustic remembrance of a past dance, concluding a circle of mediated sensational events.

corpus is based on scenes from 'corpus pygmalion', which premiered Dec 2011 at Center fro Art and Media, ZKM Karlsruhe, Germany
