LEIKA: Interactive Music Performance & Platform
Leika (Icelandic for "play") is an interactive performance platform that allows any numbers of dancers, moving bodies, and even the audience, all being part of the audio composition through a custom camera sensor tracking engine. The premiere of Leika took place on a beautiful late-summer’s evening in the stunning waterfront setting of Toronto’s Music Garden. Special thanks go to Dreamwalker Dance Company, and all of the artists involved. Commissioned by Toronto Music Garden/Harbourfront Centre.
