Performance  |  Window Dance by John Toth

Thursday, March 22, 10 am–Saturday, March 24, 2012 5 pm

Peter and Elizabeth C. Tower Auditorium  

Window Dance is an installation by John Toth which uses three video projectors to layer images of light, shape, color and sound onto sculpted layers of semi-transparent fabric. Video images of fragmented texts and symbols from a Metastasio liberata seem to spray from the projectors onto the fabric as if words could dissolve through the page. On screen, a dancer enters this fabric maze and interacts with a projected virtual dancer. As viewers move closer to each video image a new sound source takes a more prominent role. Visitors walk through the environment and enter into the Window Dance.
