In 2006 Alex Zitzmann and Anso Raybaut met, creating and touring with the dance company Senza Tempo, where they realised they share the same interests in site specific art work and relating live art forms with the public. Interested in staying away from the idea of a fixed screen, they are exploring surfaces for projections and the relation between the audience, performance and the projected image. With the video performance “Cube Pusher” they created the first independent project, collaborating with artists from different backgrounds and disciplines (architecture, music, perfromance, film). which they presented at Loop Video Art Festival in Barcelona, Spain.

They are keen on learning to know new and different forms of artistic expressions, which they investigate by participating in workshops (such as Absent Interfaces. Workshop and seminar on Body and Technology, La Caldera, Barcelona; Workshop audiovisual real time creation, Public BCN; Augmented stage design, Telenoika.) and visiting art events (Venice Biennal, Documenta, Kassel;) and festivals (Tanz im August, Berlin; Fiar, Portugal, Sonar, Barcelona;)

………
All our projects have in common that they use an exceptional approach to demonstrate the broad possibilities of video-installation and performance. The borders between reality and the projected image become blurred, the spectator gets involved into the on-screen and stage actions. The whole space is converted into a new abstract world – a universe of projected image-objects, integrated space and live action, that can be stepped into and enjoyed by the viewers. A new dimension absorbs the existing space… and provides a novel consciousness of experiencing the space, making it tangible. The spectator is set into the art-space and becomes part of a different world.
