PROX:IMITY RE:MIX is a layered performance combining dance, theatre and a complex multimedia universe that explores being young in this time and place. The show is created and performed by local Revelstoke youth, directed by MACHiNENOiSY artistic directors Delia Brett and Daelik and uses interactive technology like the Xbox Kinect system to trigger sound and visual projections.
PROX:IMITY RE:MIX is developed from MACHiNENOiSY’S highly acclaimed 2012 production Law of Proximity. “The show looks at what the body can do when freed from traditional expectations. Watching the performers slink and twist across the stage is a reminder of what our bodies are capable of.”-Stephanie Ip, The Province
