Virtual and Physical Dance

Posted on August 14, 2009 at 11:30pm 2 Comments

I am artistic director and choreographer for Ballet Pixelle ( and am working to explore the intersection of physical and virtual dance. I welcome any and all discussions. We are looking at avatars interacting with real dancers. We are "dancing into the digital future..." Does anyone have any experience with this?

Also, does anyone have/use a low-cost motion capture system?

Thank you for your reply. I haven't seen the film you mentioned. Is it available online? It sounds really cool what you're doing in Second Life. I think I would like that. Maybe I have to get an account there now... oh no, too many communities to keep track of... Anyway, maybe later when everything else is sorted out. :)

I'm Emelie. I just replied to your blog post, and got interested in your work. It'd be interesting to learn how you work in Second Life. I've never used that community but I can kind of see a connection to the work we do in Tele-Plateaus. Have a look at my website if you feel like it.
