The Numeridanse platform in association with Akram Khan Company launches a participative project to all dance or video enthusiasts. Whether young or old, amateur or professional, alone, in duet, in group, in family,
between friends or colleagues, everyone is invited to follow the instructions of the choreographer Akram Khan to participate in this collective digital project.
The Animal Kingdom Project is an initiation between Numeridanse and Akram Khan Company.
Inspired from the Company’s production Outwitting the Devil that centres the human connection to the natural world, this project is an opportunity for you to evoke the wild things that we believe, live in you.
We would like to invite all of you from wherever you are in the world, no matter what age you are, what your physical ability is or level of dance experience, to explore the deepest part of your imagination. We would like you to choreograph your own performance embodying seven animals of your choice, to a music composed by Vincenzo Lamagna. We’re encouraging you to then film your creative genius and send the performance video to Numeridanse. The film will then be displayed online and will create an animal kingdom that connects each of us around the world. You can do it on your own, in a duet or in a group. We will guide you through all that you need to know with the tutorial videos.
In a world where people are connecting through digital devices more and more, it feels like the perfect time to invent and invest in new ways of coming together. Join us in this adventure! Create it, film it, share it. With all the videos we receive, we will edit a final dance film that will represent our global community: our shared animal kingdom.
So, what are the animals within you?
Titled Animal Kingdom, this project poposes to the particpants to incarnante seven animals and to film themselves on a music composed by Vincenzo Lamagna and to be outside. Each video will be displayed on the Numeridanse platform. A collective work produced with all of the participants’ videos will be produced and previewed on Numeridanse.
