|Description ||Piece for several perforemers with hand mirrors, camera and electronic sounds|
A camera and 1-2 pocket lamps are positioned on the stage.
The camera reacts to light signals and transmits the values to the computer.
The performers walk backwards from the front of the stage slowly, step by step towards the camera. Each performer has a hand mirror with which he/she can orientate him/herself while walking.
At the same time, the task is to direct the light of the pocket lamps into the camera lens with the hand mirror. This is very difficult when you are standing with your back to the camera. Every "hit" produces synthetic sounds.
Mirror Piece is created in the frame of the project Ausgerenkte Kräfte - Forces disloquées
