AboutBoy is called Projector because a video projector is attached to his head. Girl's name is Conjector. A TV is attached to her head. Boy meets girl on screen. They dance through screens.
Projector/Conjector is a performance duet that playfully references dance and the mechanics of theatre. Moved by digitally generated moving image, the two creatures meet and fall in love, inspired by Swan Lake and Star Wars.
Originally trained as a zoologist, then as a theatre designer, Mamoru Iriguchi makes multimedia performance work that is rooted in his knowledge and experience of designing space for live performance as well as broad interests in 2D and 3D, gender and sexuality, parasitism and symbiosis, fairytales and evolution theories.
