Support = Survival

Ch: Robert Connor and Loretta Yurick

Visually beautiful and inventive, PRISM fuses dance, music and digital animation in a colourful blend of imagery and movement. Using motion captured, on-screen choreography, projecting virtual dancers with live dancers, PRISM paints an ever changing motional landscape, structured on and informed by the spectral colours of refracted white light.
