Project description:
Choreographer Talitha De Decker is fascinated by simplicity in movement, but in her seemingly simple dance movements, complex figures lurk. Together with a composer, an architect and two dancers Talitha interprets the sporting challenge of the Filipino folk dance Tinikling, in which the performers skillfully maneuver between moving bamboo sticks.

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.
