Ogres is an experience that is part dance, part puppetry and part play that contains no spoken words. All the stories are based on Japanese folktales like the Dojoji, the Baku, the Kuchisake-onna, and many more. Each story was told through movement and music.
The cues were both remixed found music and original compositions based on modern electronic dance bands like Grimes, Stantigold and Austra.
All of the cues were built in Ableton Live and played back via Ableton Live, and triggered by QLab.
