D. A. K. I. N. I. S U I T (E) is an interactive performance that involves the use of suit motion capture. The correspondence between the experience of the body and its virtual projection is at the center of the 3D animations of the performance D.A.K.I.N.I. SUIT(E); the suit, second skin of the performer, allows the dialogue between the physical body and the virtual body, through overlaps, duplications, symbioses and
clashes, as well as the creation of new digital identities outside of pre-established tracks – other identities that create new territories by imagining and desiring, as Deleuze said.
We wish to reveal to the public the process and the relationships, and to modify in real time the body/space and the transforming spaces/places. The body re-creates the space it crosses, changing its features. On stage there is the director, a dancer performer and a motion designer.
Our research feeds on Donna Haraway's cyborg and on Susan Styker’s somatechnics, which allude to the inextricable intertwining of soma, the body, and technics, technology, techniques.
