Mx.Red – The Experience and Waackin’ Ball

Overview

Mx.Red (pronounced misread) is the person you have been waiting to meet. They are here to transport you to a world where the energetic body can be seen to the naked eye; to open a portal of movement from another dimension.

In Mx.Red, artist Jonathan Homsey brings together motion capture technology and live performances to create eleven experiences of dance, expression and intimacy beyond gender lines.

Featuring music by Joyce Wrice (USA), and choreography by Sela Vai (Western Sydney) and Homsey, Mx.Red collides contemporary dance with street to blur the lines between virtual and the physical worlds.
