loopdiver: The Journey of a Dance
Troika Ranch, a dance-theater-media performance company based out of New York City and Berlin, Germany comes to Lincoln, Nebraska to create a new piece called "loopdiver." What begins as an experiment involving the loops and repetitions created by today's computerized modern world evolves into a complex exploration into the repetitive patterns in which ordinary people find themselves trapped. Over the course of two years, company members struggle with their own inner turmoil as they try to cope with the extreme physical and emotional demands of creating this unique new work. Real-life inspiration comes when company members visit a rehabilitation hospital and see firsthand the repetitive motions patients perform in an effort to regain mobility. This program follows along on the creative journey with these "interactive performance pioneers" as they create "loopdiver" -- an avant-garde, multimedia dance work interweaving looped choreography, music, interactive visuals and lighting as the performers attempt to escape their prisons of repetition.Visit loopdiver: The Journey of a Dance Website
