Struck by the lightning: The ongoing research with choreographer Juan Carlos Garcia and his company, Lanonima Imperial, is based on a continual dialogue about the body in space and its dialogue with electronic time-based media. In each iteration or new production we work to extend and advance this relational knowledge set building. Most productions are shown between 10 and 20 venues across Europe, allowing for further refinement within the production cycle. Projects are extensively workshopped and previewed in small theatres before opening. Innovative ideas, new techniques and combinations of custom software solutions, interactive systems, robotics and new display technologies allow us to create new mediated spaces. Through the refinement and reinterpretation of existing technologies and a reflective approach to an eleven year collaboration, we have made significant conceptual advances in the use of media on stage and the use of the body as machine interface. Research into Michelangelo's lost painting, The Battle of Cascina (known from sketches), the work reconstructs a lost work through a set of electronic systems. Through the use of interactive and sensoric video systems we create a mediatised space that allowed the pieces (sketches) to be located and reassembled.
