Syn├ękine project

Phase 1 / 13 > 18 January 2014 

The Synékine project brings together performative and scientific research for the construction of a new expressive language. 
The neologism «synékinésie», is constructed from the Greek terms «syn»(union) and «kinesis» (movement). 
By analogy to «synesthesia», a phenomenon in which two or more perceptive senses are associated, «synekinesia» would reflect our ability to associate two or more motor senses.  In the Synékine project, the interpreters develop a fusion language mixing vocal gesture, manual gesture and movement in space. This language is augmented by an interactive environment consisting of sensors and other new human-machine interfaces.
