No Longer Showing.
Created by DD Dorvillier, Thomas Dunn, Sébastien Roux, Katerina Andreou, and Walter Dundervill, Extra Shapes is a dance event, a musical concert, and a light show – laid out like a giant slice of Neapolitan ice cream on The Kitchen's floor. Featuring autonomous simultaneous scores for dancers, loudspeakers, and lights, the piece consists of a 17-minute sequence repeated three times – the audience changing seats with each iteration. Extra Shapes plays with the affinities and antipathies between sound (strawberry), light (vanilla), and movement (chocolate), and is completed by the changing audience perspective, and the accumulation of their radical shifts in perception. Organized by Matthew Lyons as part of “ From Minimalism into Algorithm.”
