Oecumene is an interactive dance and music piece that reflects on the role of the individual in the world, expanded through technology beyond the limits of her geographical birthplace or cultural identity of origin. The Oecumene is a term that comes from the Alexandrian ideal of Cosmopolis: the world inhabited as a whole, as the common possession of the civilised humanity of free men and women. A concept developed in this creation for a dancer and threedimensional immersive sound design, in which she enters and interacts with a sonic landscape composed of thousands of sounds coming from multiple places on the planet. The development of the expressive qualities of dance in relation to this tapestry of universal sounds in constant transformation, work as an organism that mirrors the transcultural syncretism of the world that we have to live.
The piece employs an original technology that allows the dancer to interact in real time with lights and a sound reflection of the multidimensionality of the world that surrounds us.
Oecumene proposes a sensory experimentation through our bodies, of a world accessible to our senses enlarged through interactive technology.
