This interactive dance experience derives from three solo adaptations of
the same dance score, No
Time To Fly, written and choreographed by American dance pioneer Deborah
Hay and performed by Jeanine Durning, Juliette Mapp, and Ros Warby.
In conjunction with The Forsythe Company's Motion
Bank research project, the three solos were recorded 21 times over 2
years in Frankfurt, Germany.
Video artist Rachel
Strickland and inventor Eric
Gould Bear reframed the piece with Hay as a 13 minute 33 second
polylinear trio for human-scale installation. The real-world exhibit,
Unfolds: Looking at Deborah Hay's Dance, will be on view from
February 23 to May 18, 2014 at the Blanton Museum of Art at The
University of Texas at Austin.
Whole Point Space, the portable embodiment of Hay's exhibit,
plays in MONKEYmedia's Walk-in
Theater™ for iOS. Developed by Strickland, Bear and sound
McKee, Walk-In Theater experiments with peripatetic
perspective, engaging participants' proprioceptors and spatial memory to
orient themselves as they navigate among multiple video streams in a 3D
"The app and exhibit literally drop the audience into the middle of a
Deborah Hay dance performance," explains Bear. "The spatialized
audiovisuals and motion-based user interface establish each visitor as a
choreographer of unique juxtapositions. This deconstructing of bounds
between active performer and passive observer is a phenomenal way to
experience Hay's work."
The mobile app is available
on the App Store.
