Sydney Dance Company

Visual design by Clemens Habicht

Rafael Bonachela invited Clemens to collaborate on his new work Anima as part of the Sydney Dance Company’s program for Untamed.

Directly echoing the dance onstage, the visual projections are a reactive accompaniment generated through three dimensional scans, translating the expressive forms and gestures of the dancers into abstractions of motion. We glimpse these apparitions as spirit-like echoes, extending beyond and outside the physical of the body, flooding the stage in radiant, vibrating chords of colour that render an inner emotional world large, exposed and brilliant.
