URGENT: male dancer needed for wearable technology/spoken word project

Hi, all!
A colleague is looking for a male dancer for a very interesting project involving wearable sensors and spoken word. The performer's actions will be used to trigger spoken words inspired by the short experimental film "The Perfect Human" made in 1967 by Jørgen Leth. The movement can be improvised and will involve a performance at LEMUR, NYC later this month. See below for more information /project description and contact Hannah Perner-Wilson directly at hannah@plusea.at if you're interested.
cheers,
~Josephine


PROJECT:
During a March residency at Lemur in Brooklyn, Mika and Hannah we will develop a custom sensor suit made out of soft fabric pressure sensors that are attached to the suit where the wearer's joints bend. By capturing the pressure applied to the sensors we are able to estimate the angles of the joints, tracking the performer's
poses, gestures and motion. The performer's actions will be used to trigger spoken words inspired by the short experimental film "The Perfect Human" made in 1967 by Jørgen Leth.

"The Perfect Human":

TIMELINE:
- march 10th, 11th: first meeting to get to know each other and talk about the project.
- march 15th, 16th: experimenting with the system on the weekend of
march 15th, 16th.
- until march 19th: meeting as often as possible to develop an improvise-able choreography for the performance.
