Dance meets media art: Karlsruhe media artist Chris Ziegler presents his new dance production with the Norwegian/Estonian dance duo Kenneth Flak and Kolli Rossna. The basis of the dance performance is the system of movementelaborated by the dance duo entitled Response Body − Responsive Space. This system conceives of the body as a system, which seeks the connection of space, audience and media on stage. In collaboration with Swiss scientist Daniel Bisig, Chris Ziegler designs a Corps de Ballet, a computer generated swarm of agents which dance like fish around visitors’ feet.
