The Philippine folk dance is performed on the ground between two bamboo sticks. The ritmic movements of the sticks are translated into a ‘danceable’ floor filled with LED-lights. They project lines to which the dancers interact creating a sort of neon ‘Dance Revolution’ arcade game. But the stenography takes it one step further making it possible to rotate the floor panels upwards into walls. This creates a visual universe in which the two dancers try to keep up with the pace of the projected patterns . Here the scenography is more than a background, it becomes a third dancer.
