Owl and the Serpent

Owl and the Serpent utilizes proprietary technology designed exclusively for RDT by electrical engineer Ben Peoples, a computer on the side of the stage, synched to a music score featuring classical, tango and modern music motifs, “talks” to the light-wired costumes, sets, puppets and props so that the EL wire along with the dancers “dances” to the music score. The audience is transported into a world of wonder and surprises where humans morph into animals, flowers grow to amazing proportions and defy gravity with a humorous
“Waltz of the Flowers” variation, serpents and owls disembody and reassemble or fall and recover “matrix” style in the blink of an eye. The fully animated backdrop changes regularly throughout the show as well, beginning as a tree in moonlight, populating with fruit or menacing with slithering serpents as the performance continues. Constant visual surprises and athletic virtuosic dancing delight audiences young and adult alike.

SELFIE at Navrasa Duende Global Carnival, New Delhi India @ New Delhi | Delhi | India

SELFIE // An evening of non-stop surprises and stunning beauty awaits you.

Through virtuosic dancing and the wizardry of motion tracking technology, audiences will be swept into an otherworldly artistic wonderland. The audience becomes a part of the show when they text their own selfie to the stage and see it appear during the performance. Then audience members journey with RDT through an exotic moving landscape – a sometimes gentle, sometimes explosive terrain – as SELFIE delves into the mystery of the ‘self’. Are we our outer perceived persona, our inner emotions, or our deep unconscious self? Or are we the selfie that we ‘share’ with the world?
