Tango de Soledad

Billy Cowie

Research output: Other contribution


Tango de Soledad is a looping (5min) life sized stereoscopic installation. The dance is based around Cowie’s Tango No 3 for Cello and Piano (played by himself and Wei-Tsen Lin) and his poem Tango de Soledad which is recited in Spanish by Clara Garcia Fraile. The piece is performed against specially constructed drawings (by Silke Mansholt) and uses similar techniques to In the Flesh to give the viewer the impression that they are sharing the space with a real, life-sized solid dancer.
