skinSITES series contemplates on the phenomenon of “disappearance of a live performer” in the time of new media. For each site, taking inspiration from the site (its history, architecture, surrounding) Hiroko Tanahashi collaborates with a local choreographer / dancer to create a piece specially produced for this particular site. The 11th SkinSITEs has been created for the DA2 contemporary art museum a former prison - in Salamanca (Spain).
The music / sound design refers to the former utilization of the building as a prison as well as the traditional Spanish dance Bolero. To increase the impact of sound and the rotating images the acoustic irradiation was realized by the use of quadraphonic surround.
