free improv of music and dance with Tomás Gris and ARTHUUR:
Dance-music-visual meeting in improvisation, where the instant happening on the stage materializes on three levels – by sound, movement and drawn line. This project was created in Czech-Netherland collaboration between two dancers, two graphic designers and two musicians. Together they focus on the research of how to capture “a moment” happening on the stage while shared with an audience.
The specialty of project Arthuur is a mechanical machine developed by the team of graphic designers in collaboration with the dancers. The machine is attached to different parts of the dancer’s body and in this way is able to write down all his movement by a pen on the paper. The machine can register the special extremities of the movements, speed and dynamicity. Each registration is however unique, since it depends on many other factors as position of the rest of the body, a slight inclination of the pen or elastic pulled too hard through a rough movement.
