Dance (re)mediated

IMG_3284

The workshop incorporates a common reflexion and a practical, creative process around the following questions: How can we integrate digital technologies into performing arts? Why the actors of these two fields can be interested in each other’s work? What do we mean by reactivity or interactivity in the field of technology or media arts and how can it be connected to movement?

Participants have the possibility to try out and understand several tools, gadgets and hand-on examples and get into a short creative session combining movement with one of the chosen tool of the workshop.
