Hi BAC community! We are A+ Productions, a multi-media production company dedicated to merging the aesthetics of dance and design. We would like to invite you learn about our upcoming “Performance Design” event, SMOKING MIRRORS; a collaboration between A+, KINEMATIK Dance, and illi.SITE Studio. We are currently running a kickstarter campaign to supplement our grant from the Brooklyn Arts Council. Please take a moment to check out our kickstarter page. If you like what you see, then you can make a donation and receive special mention as supporter, plus other fun perks!
SMOKING MIRRORS is the first in a series of “Performance Design” events that incorporate urban dance, design and multi media arts created collaboratively with designers and choreographers. Audience participants move through a multi-sensory interactive environment experiencing tactile sensations, sights and sounds.
SMOKING MIRRORS is an interactive journey into the fragmentation of the self through the various stages of reflection, representation and media bombordment. By exploring and expanding the architecture of the body in motion we create fantastical, whimsical, and distorted environments where the lines between object and human, viewer and viewed, performance and experience are often blurred. Quite simply we create "bodies by design" and "design by bodies". Expect a bizarre and amusing collage in the likes of Tim Burton, M.C. Escher, and Grace Jones.
