KIMOSPHERES in 2016: Rehearsals for International Metabody Forum (April 4-9, 2016)

Rehearsal 1 - Rehearsal 2 - Rehearsal 3 - Metabody Forum London


The DAP-Lab company is seen here rehearsing towards its third installment of a "kinetic atmosphere" with new new conceptual performance-costumes interlinked to architectural kinetic states and phases. These phenomena of presencing "dance" as atmospheres in space that can be felt, heard, and experiences through all senses, visual and non-visual, are examined by the DAP-Lab artists under the name "metakimosphere".
The concept for an immersive installation was developed over the last two years, and the second installment of metakimosphere occured during the International Metabody Forum in Madrid (July 2015).
