NAME: Pixel

AUTHOR: Adrien M / Claire B, a French performance company specialized in mixing performing arts with digital tools, in collaboration with French choreographer Mourad Merzouki.

DESCRIPTION: As its title suggests, Pixel is a dance piece that integrates digital elements to the live performance of 11 dancers to create a unique visual experience. The dancers’ moves, inspired by circus and hip-hop, are in perfect synchronisation with the light projections to the point that it becomes impossible to distinguish the physical from the digital world. Produced by the CCN de Créteil et du Val-de-Marne / Compagnie KäfigPixel was presented in November 2014 at the Maison des Arts de Créteil near Paris.

AMUSEMENT RATE: Many artists are now using digital technologies to enhance the visual impact of their performance but only a few manages such a balanced result. Technology is so visually powerful that it can easily steal the show and reduce the dancers to mere illustrative accessories. This is not the case in Pixel, where physical and digital complement each other to reach a new level of visual poetry. Let’s now hope that Beyonce comes across this video so we can soon have an updated and more sophisticated version of her Billboard 2011 performance
