Jonah Bokaer's - Octave from Giovanni Jubert on Vimeo.

"A solo dance work composed through the use of DanceForms 1.0 software. To accompany the live choreography, Bokaer collected five thousand used MetroCards which were deposited onto the performance space creating an alarming audiovisual activity of flying décor and musical reverberation.
The work collapses the traditional distinctions between movement, sound, and décor. Bokaer also recreated Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel (made of MetroCards), motorized by hand during the performance, pointing towards the legacy of Duchamp."
