AFTERIMAGE, a choreography for light

AFTERIMAGE is a installation-performance that asks what today’s choreography could be by creating movement in space with the means of light and sound. The absence of a physical body makes this work unique as a performance. It becomes a Choreography for Light. The artists focus on the remainder of an image in one’s vision after it is gone. The name of the installation can also be understood as AFTER THE IMAGE.
