I simply can’t believe I’ve found this film! ‘Evidentia (evidence) – 1 film (4) conceived by Sylvie Guillem’ is an art documentary about my favorite dance hacker – Sylvie Guillem.
A classical ballet dancer with internationally successful career who switched off to contemporary dance by blowing the stage off with her elasticity… I already blogged about issues regarding retired ballet dancers about two yearz ago (52 Percent) with a special accent on Guillem as a role model. Also, she’s been mentioned in my interview with Dr. Beatriz Calvo-Merino as her favorite dancer.

Wayne McGregor has been lately probably the most mentioned and referred choreographer on Body Pixel. His work ‘Dyad 1909 (In The Spirit Of Diaghilev)’ was also featured in Body cinema during February, 2010.
It’s time to present Wayne McGregor’s 2002 Chrysalis video dance , made in the production of my favorite Arte TV channel. Mr McGregor dances in Chrysalis too.

My next interview from the series of Cognitive of the Performative programme by Centre for Drama Art aka cdu was made during the Workshop with Choreographic Objects that I attended in December, guided by Scott deLahunta.
Scott deLahunta is a former dancer and choreographer, who began working in the mid-1990s as a researcher and coordinator for projects bringing together new media and live performance practices. For years he’s been advocating for creating software tools for choreographers from the environment of emerging new technologies.
