Death Animations, 2008

– 9 dancers outfitted in fantasy armour- slow motion combined with movements based on computer game death animations
– Performers simultaneously blasted with high volume binaural beats reputed to induce out of body experiences
– Closely linked to Condon’s past works utilizing modification of existing computer games, as well as performative events with medieval re-enactment and fantasy live action role playing subcultures.
–  Death Animations was a re-interpretation of a Naumann work through the lens of “New Age” ideas such as astral projection, as well as computer games and recent foreign conflict
