The Pearlfishers

This version of Bizet’s Pearlfishers duet is dependent on audience interaction.

An image of a dancer is projected on to the bottom of a stainless steel tub filled with water. By touching the water the audience evokes the music and the dance, frame by frame, resembling the chronophotographic imagery of Eadweard Muybridge.

The installation consists of a stainless steel tub (90*110*12 cm), 15 litres of water, a white Plexiglas board, microphones, projector, computer and loudspeakers.
