Apollo 2000 Intermedia Performance Group
Apollo 2000 is a collaborative project involving electronic music performance, costumed performance and modern shadow theatre. Founded by Jeff Roberts and Colombia-based performance artist Adriana Rojas during a residency at the Atlantic Center for the Arts, the ensemble has presented two projects in the US and in England. Sound design involves improvised-manipulated sampled and electronic sound using ipad and other controllers, along with accelerometer tracked body motion of the performance artists which allows them to shape sound as they hand animate a story in shadow theatre. New projects to take place in Bogota, Colombia will incorporate body motion of dancers/artists on stage into interaction with projected images and sound using conductive fabrics and sensors worn by the performers.
