Career Highlights

Frieder is the creator of video motion sensing software especially designed for use with dance, music and computer art. He created the video projections and interactive technologies for Chunky Move’s works Glow and Mortal Engine. For Glow he received a Green Room Award for Design in Dance; Mortal Engine was awarded the 2008 Live Performance Australia Helpmann Award for Best Visual or Physical Theatre Production. The real-time projection work with dance has developed into an approach which uses video as a live medium, tightly integrated with set design and choreography.

Other credits include: music videos (Kylie Minogue); TV productions, work with circus acrobats (Moscow State Circus and Dummy Lab, Berlin); and opera productions for Long Beach Opera, Opera Bonn, Deutsche Oper Berlin, Stanislavski Musiktheater, Moscow, and Garayev-Festival, Baku.
