What is an Emotion?            A State of the Soul?




About the Project

E movere: Body, Sound and Movement is an interdisciplinary creation and research project originated in the Faculty of Arts of Universidad de Chile. The purpose of the project is to create an interactive model between sound and dance with the intervention of visual elements through the capture of physiological signals associated with emotions. In order to achieve this goal, the project uses measurements of biosignals such as the heart rate and muscle tension of dance performers to modulate sound and visual environments. The project has devoted 18 months of execution to generating artistic creation material from the combination of various corporal, subjective, dance, sound, visual and technological materials and procedures that emerged inside an interdisciplinary creation laboratory, a process that culminated in a performance piece and several extension and diffusion academic activities. Emovere was sponsored by funds from the Research and Creation Vice-rectory, the Juan Gómez Millas Bicentennial Initiative and Fondart Nacional 2015.

About the Piece

The performance Emovere builds a scenic poetics based on a reflection about the biology of emotion, where the bodily variations of the performers influenced by emotions and movements feed an interactive design that generates and modifies the audiovisual universe of the piece. The body of the performers is presented as a flux of information, vibrations, signals, gestures and tensions affected by the amplification of its internal processes which, at the same time, activates and modifies an environment in constant movement, displaced and unpredictable. Emovere was presented for one season at Centro Cultural Gabriela Mistral in October 2015. Shows were also offered at the Performance Hall of Universidad de Playa Ancha, Valparaiso.

WRITINGS

Emovere emerges from a creation and research project originated in the Faculty of Arts of Universidad de Chile, which had the purpose of developing a performance piece and an interactive model between sound and dance with the intervention of projected images. The project Emovere takes “emotion” as a central axis, which has generated an interdisciplinary piece that uses body processes to build a scenic poetics based on a reflection about the biology of emotion, intertwining the various corporal, subjective, dance, sound, visual and technological materials and procedures that emerged inside an interdisciplinary creation laboratory....
