Pixel – The technological ballet Adrien M / Claire B Company

Pixel, created by French performance artists Adrien Mondot and Claire Bardainne, owners of Adrien M / Claire B Company, in collaboration with hip-hop choreographer Cie Kafig, is a magical video mapping project, which creates for its viewers and experience that is almost synesthetic, and premiered at Maison des Arts de Creteil.

The performance includes a different range of digital projection mapping techniques and 11 dancers. It is described by the artists as “a work on illusion combining energy and poetry, fiction and technical achievement, hip hop and circus”, and I cannot think of a better description.

The human body in motion and the grace of the digital fabricated lights come together in a discrete manner, bringing man and technology together once again. The result is a delicate, beautiful experience, both for the viewers and for the dancers, reinterpreting the classical ballet show in a 21st century manner.
