“Acoustic Shadows, Transformations” Conference with Cast and Crew at the DMA

Acoustic Shadows

Frank and Kristin Lee Dufour and two Arts and Technology graduate students will discuss how they used choreography and lighting to interpret movement in their experimental interactive sound installation, Acoustic Shadows, an Exploration of the Sense of Space.

Acoustic Shadows is an audiovisual immersive and interactive installation that depicts Orpheus surrounded by shadows of the underworld consumed by the shadow of his wife, Eurydice.

The Dufours and the cast and production team will discuss the immersive qualities in the work and the use of choreography and lighting to interpret movement in space. They are interested in exposing the question of unity and identity of a work of art, as it integrates multiple individual talents into a single expression.

The production team includes graduate student Sherri Balch Segovia, choreographer and Djakhangir Zakhidov, filmmaker.

The discussion will take place Thursday, May 17, 6:30-8:30 p.m. in The Center for Creative Connections Theater at the Dallas Museum of Art.
