UKIYO Laboratory

May 2 – May 8, 2009
Antonin Artaud Building

The UKIYO workhop in dance/performance, design and network technologies features artists and researchers from the DAP-Lab and its Japanese partner-guests from INETDANCE Japan/Keio University (Tokyo), as well as several guest artists including Michael Takeo Magruder, Elegant Child, Keiko Courdy & Danielle Wilde 

The project involves collaborative exploration, research and experimentation conjoining artistic, technological and scientific disciplines. Based on a design libretto for the composition of a choreographic installation –  "Ukiyo" (Moveable World) –  the workshop develops performance ideas for linking physical performance spaces with virtual spaces/Second Life, and a diverse range of innovative wearable design and programming concepts, including:

      –   choreographic movement decomposition – interactional design, audio processing and polyphonic wearables – photographic/videographic image composition for interactional performance
      –   scenographic concepts for interactional choreography in networked
           virtual environments (telematic and Second Life) – avatar performance and animation/anime – programming of mixed reality environments – analysis of sensory processing, polyphonics,  and multimodal perception

The workshop takes place every day from 14:oo to 22:oo in the Artaud Studios. Interested observers are welcome.  On Friday May 8,  14:oo - 22:oo,  the team conducts open rehearsals presenting key principles and organizational methods of the workshop.

The UKIYO project will be conducted in 2009- 2010, resulting in several public exhibitions, a second workshop to be held in Tokyo (November 2009). In 2010 the UKIYO installation will tour in Europe and Japan. 

We invite other institutions and art centers to get in touch with us about potential residencies and research partnreships.

The workshop istself has started.
It would be the beginning of collaboration beyond cultures and the project represents dance work in the age of trans-culture in near future.
