The Game of Life is a sextet for three dancers and three musicians, whose ambition is to find new performative relationships between dance and music. The piece's score, seen as a cellular ecosystem, is generative, and based on principles of reaction, signalling, and cooperation between the six performers.
The title of the piece is a reference to the simulation game conceived by the English mathematician John Horton Conway, in which groups of cells evolve according to their environment, based on simple rules, and which, from iteration to iteration, produce complex and intricate patterns. The Game of Life is the proposal of a form; an experience that embodies the porosity and fragility of our bodies crossed by sound and movement.
