Inside the Pythagorean Theorem
»Number is the principle of all things« – Pythagoras
The basis for this dance piece is Pythagoras’ philosophical fundamental idea of a world being a matrix, which can give answers to all types of questions. Here, the triangle functions as the solution for an understanding of the cosmos. Dimensions can be explored, numerally depicted and from this also a predictability of life can be derived as well as models for the explanation of the world.
Special cameras record the dancers’ movements and are projected as vector graphics in synchronization with the choreography. This way, human movement is translated via mathematical calculations into geometric-abstract shapes.
