Centered around Black mythology, IF NOT NOW utilizes the body through a “Tech Demo” performance using motion capture technology in the real to re-imagine the virtual. The audience will experience a Black Knight satellite as a digital avatar; directly linked to a physical body through performance capture technology. As a flex performer dances with a computer-generated world; the audience will witness ‘rendered’ graphics of space. Through a radical approach that uses documentation as a tool to engage notions of the virtual character, the work grasps the power of Real-Time installation to cultivate the next frontier for Black speculative motion pictures.
