Steer

Wednesday, January 17, 2018 at 8 p.m.

Oakville Centre, Willson Auditorium

Presented by Zata Omm Dance Projects

Created with Jérôme Delapierre and Navid Navab. This solo work from the groundbreaking Zata Omm imagines a human trajectory where the boundary between flesh and technology becomes indistinct. What will our bodies mean and look like with the advancement of the technological age? As both question and answer, Steer reveals visionary worlds through movement, sound and a fusion of biology and technology. Gathering sensory data from the dancer – using real-time motion capture, an infrared camera and accelerometer motion sensors – the technology interprets the dancer’s movements and produces interactive effects instantaneously. In this stunning work, choreographer William Yong continues to explore the intersection of the human and the digital and continues to pursue his company’s objective – to create multidisciplinary contemporary dance works through the integration of technology and other art forms.
