Madeira Interactive Technologies Institute (M-ITI) is hosting a workshop on dance and technology in Funchal, Madeira (Portugal), 17-20/June 2019, as part of the EU Creative Europe cooperation project Moving Digits: Augmented Dance for Engaged Audience (https://movingdigits.eu). The project is a collaboration between institutions from Portugal, Germany, Estonia and UK. This will be the second workshop for the Moving Digits project, after a first workshop in February in Tallinn.
This will be an exploration and testing workshop, where we will implement and evaluate with the dancers some of the technical prototypes and artistic approaches we have developed so far, inspired by the initial ideas generated in an initial workshop in February. The objective is to develop the prototypes based on feedback that will be collected from the participating dancers.
During the workshop, the dancers will familiarize themselves with the prototypes developed, through a series of exercises. They will also provide feedback and suggestions for further development of those prototypes. Finally, we will initiate a creative discussion regarding the preparation of a Moving Digits performance. This preparation will be continued in an artistic residency in Tallinn in August, and in a third workshop in Düsseldorf in October.
The Moving Digits project aims to enhance audience understanding and engagement in contemporary dance performances, and to allow to experience dance in an augmented way (even after the performance). The project also aims to empower dancers, choreographers and technicians with further tools for expression, archival and analysis.
