loopdiver began with a simple idea: to explore looping as the core structure of a dance performance. Using a software composition and looping tool created by Coniglio, the duo transformed a video tape of a fully realized five-minute long performance into a forty-five minute video "score" with nearly 3000 edits. Then, they turned the computer screen around, and gave their six dancers an impossible task: to memorize and perform exactly what they saw before them. On stage in loopdiver, the digital materials from the original video (the music, video imagery, and theatrical lighting) maintain the precision and perfection of a computer. In contrast, the movement of the dancers is never quite perfect because they are human. When placed together on stage, we see the performers in a constant struggle to live up to an unforgiving, externally imposed machine rhythm.
