Based on the drawing series of the same name by artist Louise Bourgeois, the solo for Belgian performer Marie De Corte, uses the sparseness of the pages, notation-like drawings and handwritten text of the 11 panel series as the score for a dance performance. The audience can follow the 'score' during the performance - the printed drawings will be given in booklet form to each member of the audience.

Light Solos will be presented at ImpulsTanz in Vienna July 29th & 31st, 2012. Working with lighting from night clubs, in these two solos not only does the light produce the choreographic score but also the musical one: Sound artist Yann Leguay, uses amplification to make the lamps themselves audible. Working in concert with the body, the technique of the theatrical dispositive, becomes itself an instrument, if not an active performer.

The film version of "Atomic 5.1" will screen on Saturday the 24th of March 2012 during the Why Not festival at W139 in Amsterdam . Based on the performance of the same name in which stroboscopic lamps are used to create a reference to the original etymology of the word stroboscoop. “Strobos” means whirlwind in ancient Greek and scope and comes from “skopeďn”, which means to observe. The arrangement plays with real movement, the dancer who moves, and fictional movements, the alternating light and the angle of light.
