"The best there is currently that combines the body, art, and technology," raved a critic after seeing Chaleur Humaine. Invited into a dark séparée and equipped with headphones the audience experiences how a compelling, sensuous world evolves from two nude bodies, a thermal camera, and video projections. The image and movement artist Stéphane Gladyszewski had also already tested the effects of human heat in a gentleman's club in Montreal. Before he came to the dance scene this Canadian studied photography and visual arts, and since then he has been consistently working interdisciplinary. Using digital technology Stéphane Gladyszewski transforms tangible reality into the border areas of what is comprehensible. He developed a "thermo-video" projection system, which he uses to make the degree of heat and zones that generate heat in the human body in motion glow. Heat materializes in a play of colors. Colorful waves signalize desire. The warmth of the human body, otherwise invisible to the human eye, becomes experienceable. The dance disappears in the patterns and colors that he creates. The dancers are enveloped in a skin of light. An extremely intimate moment, each performance is only for a small audience.
