Dance Technology and Circulations of the Social, Version 2.0, MIT, Mass.

An dance-tech.net will be there!!
 

 

In recent years, technological innovations have given rise to a new field, dance technology. Populated by artist-practitioners, technologists, and theorists, this new area encompasses performance, research and development of video game technologies, motion capture experimentation, and dance for the camera. For some time, work in dance technologies has advanced without a recognizable critical dialogue in the United States.

This began to change in October 2009, when the World Performance Project at Yale, in collaboration with SLIPPAGE: Performance|Culture|Technology in residence at MIT, convened an international cohort of artists and scholars for a one-day meeting at Yale.  That event, “Emergent Global Corporealities: Dance Technologies and Circulations of the Social,” brought artistic creation, comparative media theory, and emergent technologies together with considerations of the social and corporeal.

This group reconvenes at MIT in April with additional participants for Version 2.0. “Dance Technologies and Circulations of the Social @ MIT” brings a dozen researchers to MIT to present their original media-focused research. The two-day symposium includes readings, demonstrations, and some small-scale performances, culminating in an anthology of writings to be edited by the conference convenors.

The symposium convenors are Thomas F. DeFrantz, Professor, Music and Theater Arts at MIT and Harmony Bench, Assistant Professor at the Ohio State University.

Confirmed Participants Include:
Johannes Birringer, Chair in Performance Technologies, Brunel University
Melissa Blanco Borelli, Lecturer in Dance and Film Studies, University of Surrey
Maaike Bleeker, Chair, Performance Studies, University of Utrecht
Ian Condry, Associate Professor, MIT
Scott deLahunta, Independent Artist, Berlin
Simon Ellis, Independent Artist, London
Jason Farman, Assistant Professor, Washington State University
Susan Kozel, Professor, University of Malmo

Dance Technologies, pyrotechnics and accessability of information is surely a tri-factor.  You make some very interestings points and I agree.  Do you think too much technology will cripple the art in the long run?  Our company, djs, researches lighting, new music and the dance technology to increase new creative ideas giving us the competing edge; in the future.  Check out our djs at our website.  We have a music database of 60,000 songs.  We work with belly dancers, ethnic dancers and performance arts organizations all over California (U.S.).  Our website is full of ideas and research we get here.  Thank You, Roman-Gabriel

Hello, where can I source all the findings from the first one?

Thanks.

Humans exploring hybrid art, dance, embodiment, cognition, tech-science, networks, post-humanism and culture.

welcome to UNSTABLELANDSCAPE

WE LIVE WITHIN AN UNSTABLE LANDSCAPE

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.

This network is maintained and administrated by Marlon Barrios Solano as an independent art/curatorial/social innovation project.
