Emotions in Man

An interactive dance on DVD explores ways of expressing five basic emotions by means of dance and cinematography. The viewer participates in the piece by deciding which emotions – joy, sorrow, fear, love or anger – to give to the dancer. The decision must be made several times during the piece. Should one give the dancer more and more sorrow, or suddenly plunge him into the throes of love? The viewer decides and thus determines how the piece evolves. The viewer must participate in defining the emotions or else the dancer will get frustrated and walk away, ending the piece. Shall we dance?
