Following on from my previous posts last week here is a video of the first performance of Exercise Magic!! at the CCA in Glasgow on Thursday night. As you can see the specially made costume looks great and works well.
Exercise Magic!! is a performance by Yann Seznec based on “Real Results With Coronation Street’s Beverley Callard”, an aerobics video from the mid nineties. Yann wore a custom made outfit designed both to enable the performer to manipulate the video using wii-motes as sensors (attached with custom wii arm-straps) as well as creating the sense of character needed for the performance (with shop brought sportswear). I was really pleased with how the costume looked and integrated into the overall performance. Hopefully there will a chance to show it again so more people can see it.
