At a Distance


“At a Distance” is a piece for the Spanish percussionist Juanjo Guillem and the dancer Külli Roosna, connected with each other through the medium of an interactive video installation influenced by movement sensors attached to the dancers’ limbs. The video becomes an ever-changing, unstable score for the percussionist.

The title refers to Albert Einstein’s description of quantum entanglement – the phenomenon where particles can act on each other instantly across vast distances – as a “spooky action at a distance”.
