BOY’S KHAYA Technical Exploration

In September Tavaziva facilitated a three-day research and development session at Theatre Peckham. We brought the production and technical team for BOY’S KHAYA together and started to test the lighting, sound, technology and costume ideas with Bawren Tavaziva and four of the company dancers in attendance.

The choreography challenged the design elements, and working with all the visual effects and graphics was a great experience for the team as we started to discover and understand the real potential of combining dance and motion capture technology with real-time graphics. We ended the session with a four-hour publicity shoot, where the dancers got to play with Bawren’s material in front of cameras, resulting in a brand-new teaser trailer for BOY’S KHAYA and a behind-the-scenes film that will be released soon.
