Director of Programming Martin Wechsler brought to our attention this exciting new app that brings new meaning to “site-specific” work.
Fifth Wall is an app designed for the iPad that considers the digital tablet as a new performance space. It explores the unique spatial, visual, and temporal conditions of the tablet, and its possibilities for choreography. The performance was created to embrace the multi-directional orientation and gravitational pull of the iPad. Viewers can focus on a single dance, or move, sort, and re-frame the performance.
The projectâ€™s creators, Patsy Tarr and Abbott Miller of the 2wice Arts Foundation, teamed with award-winning choreographer and media artist Jonah Bokaer, who is no stranger to expanding the boundaries of live performance through digital media.
Take a look, and keep an eye out for 2wice Arts’ next app, which will feature a yet to be chosen choreographer from the ballet world.
