‘Auf der Matte bleiben’ developed as a experiment between the human body and an interactive dance console game, exploring the movements, discipline and control required by the dancer to complete the level. How long can the dancers remain in control of their bodies when being instructed by a machine? At what point do we become overwhelmed and helpless?
