‘It’ll be a hoopla,’ says Atlas. With five dancers, three cameras, six projectors and live mixing, ‘it’s the first time I’ve worked with extended high-energy dancing in a live situation,’ he says. ‘I’m trying not to make a mess of it.’ Between rehearsals you can see ‘MC9’, a nine-channel video installation featuring excerpts of Atlas’s work with Cunningham, whose genius geometry will be in stark contrast to the styles of Atlas’s new collaborators. ‘Johanna’s performance is as much about her costume and make-up as her movement. It’s quite dark and slightly on the edge of horror,’ says Atlas. ‘And Cecilia and Francois, that’s like a fun, club experience. It’s a very hip hop-voguemodern dance mix.’ Sign us up!
