Benoit Maubrey (France/US)
Ballet dresses incorporating microphones and speakers transform the sounds they
collect from the surroundings into rhythmic movements to interact with the audience as well as the lights and shadows around.
Benoit Maubrey is a specialist in sound technology. In this exhibition, dancers will wear the Audio Tutus Maubrey produced to
perform his Audio Ballerinas. This device collects sounds and digitalizes them to respond to the dancers' movements.
Additionally, the electronic waves the dancers radiate will be affected by their relative positions and movements.
Along with corresponding lighting, dancers carrying the audio device are able to perform their wonderful steps in
an open space for the public instead of on a solemn stage reserved for a small audience.

Choreographer Ku Ming-Shen spent three years trying to bring together image/projection designer
Thomas Gray and digital artist Huang Hsin-Chien through this project. Memory Puzzles is a dance to
be presented along with flamboyant but inextricable images of the cityscapes and landscapes of Taiwan
as the backdrop of the puzzling, delusional and entangled memories of life.
