Discombobulator is a fantastical solo set against evolving projections of a negleted Venetian fa├žade. The dance triggers, in real-time, live electronic composition and computer-generated imagery. This media interplay explores the ultimately insurmountable separation between the physical presence of the body and the imaginative possibilities of virtual reality.
