About this show

Mortal Engine is a new multimedia performance work using movement- and sound-responsive visual projections to portray an ever-shifting, shimmering world that defies the limitations of the body. Created by a team of artists including artistic director and choreographer Gideon Obarzanek and encompassing many genres, the aesthetic world of Mortal Engine is unified by the computer engineering of Frieder Weiss. Mortal Engine has no pre-rendered video, light, or laser images--rather, Weiss' programming makes it possible for the instruments and dancers' bodies to wholly generate the visual element of the piece from the computer data of their movements. The work is truly live each night, unpredictable and everchanging.
