COLLAPSE: Science, Art and Dance

COLLAPSE (suddenly falling down), a new work by Della Davidson, opens at the Mondavi Center later this month. The piece is an intriguing collaboration between choreographer Davidson and her company, and geologists, computer scientists and physicists.

The piece explores the breakdown of social and ecological systems through dance and three-dimensional images with which the dancers can interact. The images were created using the W.M. Keck Center for Active Visualization in Earth Sciences, or KeckCAVES, in the Department of Geology.

No pictures from the performance yet, but you can get an idea of what the KeckCAVES can do from the movies on their web pages and on YouTube.
