BNC exhibits at the Scotiabank Dance Centre, main lobby, 677 Davie Street. Ongoing exhibit celebrating International Dance Day from April 29th to July 2015.
The images were created during research for Body Narrative Collective’s (BNC) first full length performance event Dark Room: the realm of symbols, science and memories.
Dark Room explores the use of photographic techniques as a performative medium integrated with dance, music, text, and technology in the theatre. The artists devised a system to create mural sized photograms during performance similar to the digital representation you see on display. A photogram is a photographic image that does not use a camera. It’s only requirements are: photographic paper, a darkroom and chemistry.
Dark Room allowed BNC to share discoveries in how photography can change the way we experience life, light, time and the dancing body.
