CounterPulse is broadening the international dialogue on art and technology by turning our focus to the creation of new works synthesizing body-based arts and new technology. In the Combustible Residency, CounterPulse has brought together innovative choreographers and leading creative technologists to create new works during an eight-month residency period. The creative duos, Freya Olafson and Yagiz Mungan, and Kinetech Arts (Weidong Yang and Daiane Lopes da Silva), have created bold new performances that antagonize and rediscover the corporeal body using virtual reality (VR) technology and big data visualization. The Combustible Residency showcase will be a double bill evening featuring both MÆ - Motion Aftereffect and MESH on September 7-9 and 14-16, Thursday-Saturday at 8pm. Tickets available at counterpulse.org and at the door, night of show, as available. Tickets are priced at a sliding scale of $20-$35 and Friday nights are pay-what-you-can, reservable online.
