C3 (Codes, Choreography, and a Cube)

C3 is a dance, installation and visual art piece created from algebraic formulas of a cubed structure. Dancers perform the mathematical formula inside the cube, choreographed to the algebraic expressions of the cube itself, with each movement matching a number. Underneath the 8’ cube and the dancers is a 12’ canvas, painted with the code. This code is the choreography in numerical form. This way the audience can watch and read the dance at the same time. Corresponding to the performance and installation elements are handmade cyanotype prints. These blueprints show the algebraic equations and graphs of the choreography. This work highlights mathematical dance notation.
