Baba Yaga, an interactive game/installation project with game designer Casey Middaugh which ran at the Barbican Pit Theatre September 2011. Players were challenged to navigate the maze to rescue the Firebird’s eggs, taking care to avoid the clutches Baba Yaga.
The project featured live interactive soundscapes realised via Ableton Live.
Clips from the score:
Dahlia lives alone in a world of her own imagining, of mundane routines punctuated with episodes of wild fantasy. Reading words from a dictionary, her misunderstandings are vividly enacted through a variety of expressive means - dance, music, sound and projection - each time shedding a little light on the character of the lonesome protagonist. Gradually the realities and fantasies begin to blur, the walls of her world heading toward collapse - will Dahlia escape her strange prison or be forever trapped?
