The Lovers (2012) is a hypermedia performance for dancer and musician (Sally Doughty and Craig Vear). It articulates the impact of intermedial performance environments upon composer-choreographer collaboration, specifically, the relationship between digital music composition and contemporary choreography. Magritte's 'The Lovers' asks of us to consider the feel of a kiss through a material interface. We have taken this intermedial 'connection' as a theme with which to explore a hyper-performance composition. Here a dancer and a musician 'connect' through digital technology with in a Kyma Sound, mixing the touch of music with the feel of image. Only here it is the dancer's movement that connects sound to our ears and the musicians gestures that expose the visual image.
