Leika (Icelandic for "play") is an interactive performance platform that allows any numbers of dancers, moving bodies, and even the audience, all being part of the audio composition through a custom camera sensor tracking engine. 
The premiere of Leika took place on a beautiful late-summer’s evening in the stunning waterfront setting of Toronto’s Music Garden on September 10, 2009
Special thanks go to Dreamwalker Dance Company, and all of the artists and supporters who made this performance a magical one!
