CORE Contemporary and Aerial Dance
In T'Apped, Bala Sarasvati collaborated with the Compañía Nacional de Danza Costa Rica (Mario Vircha project coordinator, Sylvia Montero, company artistic director). Film capturing occurred at the National Center of Culture (CENAC), support provided by Centro Nacional de la Cultura (CENAC) Ministry and Culture and Youth of Costa Rica. The performers were filmed in a green screen set and the film was edited with incorporation of digitally generated clips and special effects to create distorted visual images depicting our involvement with our digital realities. Performers enacted in a multitude of ways we use technology to fulfill our obsessions, desires and dreams. The film's message not only poses questions about our obsessions with technology, but how we are increasingly referencing ourselves through altered realities that define us.
