La Quinta del Lobo “Wolf Fifth” is an interdisciplinary group integrated by artists with experience in the field of electronic arts, music and dance, by the initiative of visual artist Carmen Gil Vrolijk. They began their collaboration in 2010 and since then they’ve working on the project “Vanitas Libellum” which premiered March 8, 2012.
Vanitas libellum (The book of Vanities), is a multimedia staged performance that explores the concept of time and the form in which we perceive it. Inspired by the “Vanitas” (subgenre of the Baroque still life), the project explores the possibilities of audiovisual and expanded narratives, reflecting the different visions, dreams and nightmares that humans experience around the passing of time.
The project, controlled in real time, employs large-scale projection, video mapping, dancer motion tracking, interactive interfaces and original live music. Duration: 1 hour.
