Trajectory of an Idea is an interactive contemporary dance performance that uses motion tracking technology. The choreography is structured on the dynamic relationships of the bodies with their environment: What does a limit on stage afford? What forces can be developed between ground and body? What possibilites does an idea present to another? And what does the end mean, for an idea? Motion and sound operate at an action/reaction, or cause and effect, level, creating the impression of interaction between the body and an imaginary, thus pliable, environment. The version presented is a short solo.
