After two labs at Brunel University (May 2009) and Keio University (December 2009), the forthcoming one is the third cross-cultural UKIYO workshop in performance, design and network technologies featuring artists and researchers from the DAP-Lab and Japanese partners from Keio University and Maison d'Artaud (Tokyo).

The workshop takes place every day from 14:oo to 21:3o in Antonin Artaud Studio 101. Interested observers are welcome.

The UKIYO project will be concluded in June 2010 with the ensemble touring Slovenia, with public exhibitions of UKIYO 2 and a workshop held at KIBLA in Maribor. In November/December 2010, the new production and wearable designs is projected for its London premiere, with the expected participation of Yoko Higashino and Baby Q Contemporary Dance Company.

UKIYO 2

European première: Friday, June 8, 2o:oo
KIBLA Media Art Center / Maribor, Slovenia

"Ukiyo" explores the layers of perceptions in an audiovisual world that constantly shifts and fragments; the audience is invited to move in and around the space which features one of five hanamichi (runways) and several projection screens for the virtual world graphics. The dancers perform simultaneously with digital objects that are projected. The music and visual choreography for "Ukiyo" are designed for real-time gestural interaction to animate the feedback system and generative algorithms through with the virtual space and the performer movements are intertwined.

"Ukiyo" is performed by an international ensemble of performers from the DAP-Lab whose work developed in collaboration with digital artists in Tokyo as part of a cross-cultural research venture in virtual environments directed by Birringer (director of DAP-Lab, and Center for Digital Performance, Brunel University, School of Arts) and co-coordinated by Yukihiko Yoshida (Keio University, Tokyo). The Second Life graphical interface and avatar choreography was designed and developed by Takeshi Kabata, Yukihito Obara and Ruby Rumiko Bessho. Additional engineering by Eng Tat Khoo (Keio-NUS CUTE Center & Mixed Reality Lab).

This is a social networking website connecting people concerned about innovation and experimentation on art, dance, embodiment, cognition, science, networks, post-humanism, media and the unstable landscape of contemporary culture and life.

We are in a transitional phase and refocusing the network with a broader interdisciplinary framework. It will reflect a contemporary  community interacting and embedded  unstablelandscape.
