Tracer is an audiovisual performance superimposing layers of the virtual, real, rendered, and immediate. From behind a veil of projected video the performer improvises movement to an animated audiovisual score. His motion is captured by camera, affected in the visual system, superimposed with the rendered video, and then projected back upon the veil at the front of the stage.
Video effects amplify the movement and persona of the dancer, creating organic trails of light around the geometric animations. The performer acts as an audio reactive element, enmeshing with the rendered content, so that the two become a single visual gesture describing the soundscape.
