Black Magic: FIVE

November 23 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

$15 – $20

FIVE is a multimedia performance that abstracts the art of Vogue Femme, a dance form originating from the African-American and Latino LGBTQ community of 1970s Harlem. In the performance five dancers represent the five elements of Vogue Femme—hands, catwalk, floor performance, spin dips, and duck-walking. As each dancer takes the floor, a hip-hop M.C., an operatic vocalist, a black gospel choir, and five musicians improvise an interactive soundtrack, building to a carefully structured crescendo of sound and movement. Using custom made motion-tracking technology, created from a combination of creative coding and video game hardware, Newsome maps the movement patterns of dancers during the live performances and transform the collected data into digital neoactionist drawings in real-time on a screen above the performance.
