Shadow Puppet?

Shadow Puppet? presents an interplay of embodied performance and analog machinery that gives rise to an engulfing play of light, shadow and raw optical sound.

In this project Dieter Vandoren and Mariska de Groot present a special collaboration wherein they integrate their respective expertise in embodied performance and optical sound. Mariska shoots beams of light coded by graphical patterns engraved on motorized wheels.

Performances will be at 5pm, 6pm and 7pm
