Presentation Title:

  • The Dance Of The Wobbulator




  • Stakra is a choreography for video space that has been processed mainly with a raster manipulation unit also known as wobbulator, first prototyped by Paik/Abe. It is inspired by Nam June Paik’s “Dancing patterns” created during the 60s and his later collabora-tions with Merce Cunningham in the late 70s/80s. The single channel piece is part of a wider choreography for machines, a work in progress, which processing the original choreographic sequence for a solo performer with different combinations of analog video synthesizers, will culminate in an installative ex-panded choreography.
