Switch

A performance-generated spectacle where the sound and physical connections of the tap dancers affect the lighting and visual elements of the world. Contact microphones on the floor detect the vibration of the tapping and conductive panels on the sweatshirts trigger the costume-based lighting effects.

Video documentation is from the initial performance on Nov 22. Documentation from later versions still pending.
