per_vilion is a hybrid
between a performance space, a lounge, a pavilion and media installation.
It deals with gperceptionh and gpavilionh - and works as a gperiscopeh
- hence the name gper_vilionh. With complex video projections
the landscape or architecture around the object becomes visible.
There are two conflicting ways to see action - as video or directly.
Both types of gaze are juxtaposed in and with the per_vilion. The
audience or the performers who enter the space become part of the
video image. It allows both, dancers and visitors, to play with
their own image. It is a perfect tool for choreographers who want
to explore | literally - a new direction in dance - and combine
a multi media approach with site-specific relevance.
post theater [new york / berlin / tokyo] has developed a hardware
for which it created performances, as well as commissioned others
to do so. Several choreographers and video artists were invited
to explore the relationship between movement / the body and architecture
/ cityscape / landscape. The installation allows the video to be
in the position of background, underground, foreground and performer
- for the human performer to play with in real time.
