Dimension N is an audiovisual performance focusing on live interaction between the performers (Alba G. Corral & Dariusz Makaruk) using interactive systems controlling sound and video through live sound and video input. The resulting performance is half-composed and half-improvised with the intention to deliver both the conceptual predefined content as well as the energy connected with it – the latter only possible during live stage and improvised performance.

The attempt of the project is to create emotionally coherent union between music, video and the human participants – both the performers as well as the audience.

With the support of Centre des Arts d’Enghien-les-Bains and Transcultures (in framework of Pépinières européennes pour jeunes artistes), with the support of fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles.
