Still from BONANZA! by Harrison Hall, Sam Mcgilp and Justin Kane
Body Crysis is a work developed by Harrison Hall + Sam Mcgilp and NAXS Corp, a Taiwanese-based media art collective. By bringing motion-capture and digital animation into a live-performance context, it investigates the role of the body in an increasingly digital world.
The work will be presented as a live performance with a concurrent digital experience, which remote audiences can access within NAXS’s custom built Unity Platform 0xCore
Body Crysis brings the experiments by Hall and Mcgilp of recent screen-based collaborations in motion-capture and impossible digital choreographies back into the live. The work came out of collaboration on BONANZA! a screen work presented as part of the Chunky Move’s Activators program.
