Together with independent creative producer Denis Astakhov we experimented with the idea to create multimedia performance beyond the rules. We’ve created an artistic piece at the interface of multiple genres.

Performance “8” is a complete story told on multiple layers with dance, music, video-projection and scenography. Even case study video became a standalone work, shot with a long take during rehearsals. The stage was designed to evolve and transform during the performance.








Setup

To execute all our ideas, we’ve created special techniques, developed multiple stage designs, performed tests and built prototypes. Automated show control was run by d3 4x4pro media server and projection mapping on a moving objects was done with BlackTrax — an intellectual tracking system.

12 LEDs sensors send unique infrared light impulses to the cameras.

6 BTBeacon manage LEDs sensors that can be tracked one at a time or in a group (up to 3x).

8 infrared cameras with motion capture hanging from the farm track the movements of BTBeacons.
