Brigette Cormier Dance Company Premiers New Multimedia Dancework ‘TV NO’ in Miami April 2016
MIAMI, FL – On April 16th, 2016 Brigette Cormier Dance Company (BC Dance Co.) premiers a new dance work, “TV NO” in collaboration with multimedia artist, composer, and vocalist Liza Seigido. “TV NO” is a multi sensory, multimedia dance performance choreographed and created by Brigette Cormier, founder of BC Dance Co.
The making of “TV NO”:
Dr. Liza Seigido created a custom pressure sensitive sound sensor system responsive to the dancers’ movements. It redefines audio technology with an interactive dance floor audio system, turning dancer into musical instrument. This technology utilizes custom built piezzo electric pressure sensors and Seigido’s custom built software to create this multi sensory, multimedia performance experience.
BC Dance Co. was founded in 2011 and currently consists of New World School of the Arts (NWSA) college dance alumni Amanda Edwards, Jessie Birt, and Brigette Cormier. The “TV NO” premier is located at the Rift Blackbox Theater in Wynwood, Miami at 222 NE 25th St. Suite 102, 33137. There are two performances on Saturday, April 16th one at 6pm and the second at 8pm. Tickets can be purchased for $20 at “tvno.eventbrite.com”
There is a fundraising event on Sunday, February 7th, 2016 at 3pm at the Rift Blackbox Theater. This event includes a screening of behind the scenes footage of “TV NO” and a free dance workshop with Brigette Cormier. It’s also a great opportunity to buy tickets for the “TV NO” premier.
