As the sparks fly upwards...

As the sparks fly upwards... is really on it's way now. The piece, which uses Isadora to bring live dancers and film clips together, had it's first showing last Friday with very positive results.

Lights are attached to dancers' bodies which are then tracked in the space by a camera and used by Isadora to trigger specific pre-recorded film clips. The movement is the same for the live and filmed dancers but the order is completely different. Sometimes in unison, sometimes in canon,… Continue

Michel was gentle and always curious about my work when I was an artist in residence at STEIM.

Interact with us

FireBox will be spending next week at the UK Theatre School courtesy of the Dance House working on new material for an interactive dance performance. The exciting part is...

that as well as being able to watch the FireBox dancers performing, you will also be able to get involved and get interacting with the piece. Don't worry you don't need to dance if you don't want to, you just have to be willing to hold a light and move around the room. Easy.

Come along on Friday 20th… Continue

The Practice Room, The Poles and The Paper

It's been a busy time for FireBox recently with a few breakthroughs in terms of my degree project, the first draft of my masters due in and working on a dance film with some contemporary/pole dancers.

Isadora is starting to behave herself in the Practice Room at The Arches just in time for my Dance House creative lab at the UK theatre school next week. I've got nice LED lights to use as a trigger and the dancers have been working on some great sequences that will be used as the basis… Continue

Our new Interactive Installation


with my group d-flesh (Christian Delecluse and myself) we are showing a new interactive installation called "Dans le noir" (In the dark) in the third edition of festival "Bains numériques" in Enghien-les-bains. It is in the Centre des Arts, the theatre we are in permanent residency as associated artist during the 2007-2008 period. In the second edition we performed Under-score (see the pictures I've posted).

It is a sound installation for one spectator about losing the sense of… Continue

Value of Laban Movement Analysis for Interaction Design?

In my Kinetic Interface blog, I'm very interested in the connection among dance, movement, and new body and movement-centric interfaces. I compiled a guide to videos of new interfaces that you can review.

I'm curious to what extent dancers and those trained in Laban Movement Analysis might contribute to the creation and analysis of new body and movement-based interfaces?

Along… Continue

Do you Know what a "meme" is? replicating ideas?

From TED:

Susan Blackmore studies memes: ideas that replicate themselves, passing from brain to brain like a physical virus. At TED2008, Blackmore makes a bold new argument: Humanity has spawned a new category of meme, the "teme," which spreads itself via technology -- and invents brand-new ways to keep itself alive. (Recorded February 2008 in Monterey, California. Duration: 19:28.)

Do you know of anybody researching "memes" and movement? are dance… Continue
