The 4th Moving Digits workshop took place at Sõltumatu Tantsu Lava, Tallinn, 9-13 March 2020. For 5 days, we explored how to bring the four performances developed during the project to Virtual Reality (VR). A public performance was planned for the 13th March, but it was canceled due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Instead, we focused on the remediation of the projects to VR, particularly involving motion capture data and video recordings. 9 dancers/choreographers took part in the event, together with our technical team. 12 participants were originally planned, but 3 could not attend due to COVID-19 disruptions, with some some partly participating remotely. We will now be conducting further work on the VR projects.
About Moving Digits:
Moving Digits: Augmented Dance for Engaged Audience 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. The project is a partnership between Madeira Interactive Technologies Institute (M-ITI, Portugal – Lead Partner), Hochschule Düsseldorf (HSD, Germany) and Sõltumatu Tantsu Lava (STL, Estonia). Plux (Portugal), Tanzhaus NRW (Germany) and University of Greenwich (UK) are associated partners. (more information)
