* BASIC PREDICATE : Your physical being and your movements become part of the process.
PHASE ONE: DANCE PERFORMANCE or THE ACQUAINTANCE A perfectly crafted show brings all the visitors to the knowledge of basic principles behind the scene. Two contemporary dancers take part of the interactive environment and reveal some secret aspects of the game.
PHASE TWO: PUBLIC INTERACTIVE SET Now it's up to the public, taking over the performers, to become the performers themselves. THE SPECIAL PLAYER lets itself be played by special players: each visitor has his own place to express himself, in an immersive and synergetic visual and audio feedback.
PHASE THREE: LIVE SET When the time of personal exploration through the gates of digital auras and complex interactions finally ends, the DJ pulls up the volume and starts a blast of live music performance. Meanwhile, visuals are still in control of the public: they won't lose it till the dawn.
THE SPECIAL PLAYER is a result of an interdisciplinary cooperation between international choreographs, contemporary dancers, the crossover interactive group 02L > OUTSIDE STANDING LEVEL, the Berlin-based Picamotics/ATTOMAAKU-Platform and libavg, an open-source high-level multimedia platform with a focus on interactive installations. It has been supported by c-base Berlin, planb and several external artists and technicians.
THE SPECIAL PLAYER show has been performed for the first time in TRANSMEDIALE.08 : CONSPIRE festival, hosted by c-base Raumstation unter Berlin.
