  • Dear TroikaTronix Community,

    My company LEIMAY will have a world premiere at BAM Fisher(Brooklyn, NY) next week(September 14-17)

    In this piece, we are using Isadora with 7 video projectors. And we don't use any theater lights. These links are the excerpts of the last two pieces with similar configuration I did.

    Combining the LEIMAY Ensemble's LEIMAY Ensemble's signature physicality, layered over vivid visual landscapes, FRANTIC BEAUTY engulfs audiences in a minimalistic yet immersive environment juxtaposing trembling and harmonious images to reflect on society’s pursuit of and relationship to beauty. This world premiere sets visceral vocalizations and scattered soliloquies against the contrasting movements of Emmy-winning composer, Jeff Beal's(House of Cards), original score. FRANTIC BEAUTY is part of the BECOMING pentalogy, a series dealing with matter’s constant state of becoming through growth and decay, beginnings and endings. 

    September 14th - 17th, 2017 
    Performance time 8:00 PM (Sunday 6:00 PM)
    BAM Fisher 321 Ashland Place,
    Brooklyn, NY 11217

  • Discount code was not working well before.

    I just fixed it so it should be fine now.

    Thanks,

    Shigezo



  • Dear @Shigezo 

    The videos look fantastic! I'll promote this on the Isadora page in in the next couple of days. I would just link directly to the BAM page at http://www.bam.org/dance/2017/... - yes?

    Best Wishes,
    Mark



  • Saw the performance tonight and it was fantastic! @Shigezo used 7 projectors masterfully to create architecture out of light, for illuminating the performers, and to project gorgeous content. I was particularly taken with a section in which he created jagged-yet-soft, organic-yet-artificial splashes of seemingly-living light-forms that pulsated on the ground like beating hearts and were simultaneously graceful and attractively grotesque. Go see it if you get the chance, there are still two days left!



  • Dear @mark

    Sorry, I just saw your post today.

    However, thank you so much for your offer.

    It means a lot to me.

    I wish you could see it.

    All my best,

    Shigezo



  • Dear @Woland,

    It was very nice meeting you last week and thank you for coming!

    Keep in touch!

    All my best,

    Shigezo
