Dance With Me

DANCE WITH ME is a ground-breaking digital installation that invites members of the public to interact, imitate and respond to a dancer’s silhouette as she moves to a recording of a Bach cello suite.

In the installation members of the public are dynamically changed to an abstract silhouette, before their movements are digitally captured. The anonymised data then contributes to a projected accompaniment at the live concert.

BACH DANCE is a live performance by cellist Peter Gregson and renowned historical choreographer and dancer Jane Gibson as part of Bristol Proms in Bristol Old Vic’s Theatre Royal on Friday 31st July at 9.45pm.

It’s a unique opportunity to engage with Bach’s iconic classical music in a new way and be part of cutting-edge digital experimentation within live classical music performance.

DANCE WITH ME is a brand new technology package designed for music venues and is being developed by digital artist Scott Fletcher, with Peter Gregson and Jane Gibson. It is supported by Bristol Old Vic, Play Nicely and Arts Council England.
