Event Notes

× All abilities, 9-90 years

FluxDelux is a no-experience-required workshop that creates a spontaneous choreography celebrating the poetics of space using a tailor-made iOS app. A simple set of guidelines set a group of people - on their feet or in their wheelchairs - in motion, creating ever-evolving, constantly recalibrating, gloriously eventful group choreography. Led by Peggy Baker, FluxDelux marries contemporary dance with cutting-edge new media technology designed by creative technologist Jacob Niedzwiecki. Movement instructions are delivered to pedestrians and wheelchair users via the app, through earphones, or through push notifications for Deaf and hard-of-hearing participants.

Using the custom iPhone app OR our audio file OR Peggy’s simple set of instructions, anyone can join in, negotiating space with creative physicality and generosity.

FluxDelux was created with Tangled Art + Disability and students from Rosedale Heights School of the Arts.
