A Birth is a biofeedback based audiovisual performance about an unseen story, premiered in 2016. The piece converges with experiment, using technology to creatively reinterpret the imperceptible of unseen life inside a human body through biological processes. The ECG and pulse sensors attached to the dancer’s body measure her heartbeat and movements of certain muscles, which are controlling a LED-strip around her. As a result a light-uterus behaves as a living organism, in harmony with its inhabitant, until its creature leaves it.
