What started out as a large-scale interactive science installation in Britain circa 2011 entitled “danceroom Spectroscopy” (aka dS) morphed into the performance Hidden Fields which premiered in Bristol in Oct 2013, and had its London debut at the Barbican in March of 2014. Though the interactive science installation has made previous stateside appearances as an interactive science installation, this is the US debut of Hidden Fields, which puts the technology in service of performance.
Employing the technology “danceroom Spectroscopy” or dS for short, scientist, author, Stanford academic and Royal Society Research Fellow at the University of Bristol (UK), Dr. David Glowacki has collaborated with a talented team comprised of visual artists, music technologists, computer programmers, electronica composers and dancers in this series of performances that make visible the effects of human movement on the invisible energetic world of atoms and molecules surrounding a team of dancers who will use their energy fields to construct a living and breathing, hi-definition atomic sculpture live on stage; Hidden Fields makes manifest a feeling experienced by many: that we are part of something much bigger and unseen
Dancers all hail from Britain and include: Lead dancer Lisa May Thomas, Emma Harrie, Tomimo Kosano and Isabelle Cressy
Other collaborators include: Visual artist Phill Tew; Composer Prof. Joseph Hyde; Music Technologist Dr. Tom Mitchell
