Description

Designer's statement: Altai Shamans worshiped the mother sun and the father moon as their gods. Sun and Moon gods would fight with evil spirits and protect their people from danger. Yet sometimes, evil spirits would capture the gods, causing solar and lunar eclipses. To save their gods, Altai people would shout, drum and make incredible noises during the eclipse. Eclipse is an interactive dance costume that creates its own visual and sonic environment based on the wearer’s movements. It tells the story of a Shaman Eclipse through its light play and dynamic soundscape.
