Combining live dance with 3-D video, Tesseract has a science-fiction edge from filmmaker Charles Atlas and choreographers Rashaun Mitchell and Silas Riener. The two-part work opens with a stereoscopic 3-D video shot with dancers in six locations. The filmed dance is followed by live dance, with the dancers' movements amplified by equally live video mixing. This intricate mix of live performance and film was developed over several years at New York's EMPAC (Curtis R. Priem Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center), but the creative trio first met years before while working with legendary choreographer Merce Cunningham. Among their other extensive credits, Mitchell and Reiner were dancers in Cunningham's company and Atlas was Cunningham's highly lauded, longtime filmmaker-in-residence. This notable event marks Atlas' first dance film in a decade.
