Gruppenausstellung, Kunsthalle Mainz
Between Us brings with Kunsthalle Mainz, tanzmainz and Motion Bank three different partners together in a cooperative venture. When knowledge migrates from one discipline to another, when it is transmitted and translated, not only are new links generated, but the knowledge itself is repositioned and looked at afresh. Between Us is an interdisciplinary project set side by side fine arts, dance, digital dance research and education on issues of knowledge sharing using new digital possibilities.
The cooperation is based on the choreography Effect by Finnish choreographer Taneli Törmä, which was developed for Between Us, and whose digital transmission by means of video recording, annotation and motion capture methods is given to international contemporary artists Tim Etchells, Tamara Grcic, Žilvinas Kempinas, Søren Lyngsø Knudsen, Isabel Lewis and Sissel Tolaas serving as the basis for new works. The digitalization of dance also forms the starting point for the study of dance recording and mediation as well as the experimentation with the resulting data in a choreographic coding laboratory. At Kunsthalle Mainz production and exhibition, process and performance, recording and mediation are finally combined. On the one hand it shows and opens the process and the results of a unique cooperation; on the other hand it forms a lively place of experiencing and exploring.
