Inside the Pythagorean Theorem

Inside the Pythagorean Theorem

»Number is the principle of all things« - Pythagoras’ philosophical fundamental idea was the world being a matrix, which can give answers to all types of questions. Dimensions can be explored, numerally depicted and from this a predictability of life can be derived as well as models for the explanation of the world.

Special cameras record the dancers’ movements and are projected as vector graphics in synchronization with the choreography. This way, human movement is translated via mathematical calculations into geometric-abstract shapes.
