“Ce que la vie doit à l’imaginaire” (what our life owes to the imagination) is a performance multimedia by the choreographers duo from The Hague, Jérôme Meyer and Isabelle Chaffaud. “Ce que la vie doit à l’imaginaire” examines the powerful influence between technology and man in the world of dance performances. Wireless technology, algorithms, performers mingle together: do they play or control each other? Who is influencing whom? Ultimately, their point of departure is how the mind and/or machines create motion and emotion through technology. Together with the software artist Marcus Graf, they developed applications and tools for this project to enable the performer to control sound and image kinetically through a wireless network. The trio Meyer, Chaffaud, and Graf present with this performance an ode to the power of imagination, a holographic image of a unique poetic world.
