while(true)

while(true) is an interactive dance performance where the dancer is challenged to relate to the digital copies and manifestations of her physical data. With choreography determined real-time by both the computer and the dancer combined with conditions shaped by digital systems as well as analog design, the performance visualises an experimental reflection on human digital interaction.

A digital 3D scan of dancer Steffi de Leeuw takes the place of her dance partner. She is dancing with herself within an interactive installation both controlling and being controlled by a motion sensor. This confrontation results in a moving conversation between the physical and the digital world.

When the dancer is not present in the installation the public is challenged to trigger the sensor and manipulatie the digital image and movement of the dancer.

In cooperation with:
Steffi de Leeuw, mid-2014 Macbook Pro, Maurice de Rooij & Gita Mahabier

Showdates:
june 4 2018 @ Fontys Hogeschool voor de Kunsten Tilburg
