New Cora Mesophyll Trailer
Published on Jul 24, 2012
A trailer of the private preview of “Cora Mesophyll.” It was shown in the Arts Technology Research Lab as part of the 10 Days in Dublin Festival.
It is an experimental physical-theatre performance directed and choreographed by Cindy Cummings. Interactive audio-visuals are generated using motion-tracking technologies and biometric data processing. It is set in a bio-fictional world of genetic manipulation and technological ubiquity, where ‘Cora’ (Regan O’Brien) and ‘Jo’ (Cindy Cummings) are confronted with their deep need for connection within the banality of their daily lives. They must negotiate not only the subjective contours of their encounter but also those play parameters of the fluid environment they inhabit.
