Freya Olafson’s HYPER_

Trailer for HYPER_ premiering April 2013


With the support of núna (now), intermedia artist Freya Björg Olafson presents the world premiere of HYPER_. This new work exploits the dimensionality of the performers body in relationship to the immersive screen, moving seamlessly between 3D and 2D representations of corporeality. HYPER_ inherently becomes a site for expanded choreography where bodies and disembodied technology mix. The performer’s physique is dissected and transformed, disappearing and merging with the stage and screen. Animated by a series of transformations, layered and colorful, the body becomes a dreamscape. HYPER_ deploys an intriguing combination of low and high technology to create stunning illusions and features lighting design by Hugh Conacher.
