This is a short excerpt of our new performance/education project for 2011-2012, Bytes.
The project explores how the practice of choreography is transformed when dancers can trigger and control music, animations and films by their live movements in the space. Working with composer, Nick Williams, media artist, Erato Tzavara, and filmmaker, Neil Richards, the DanceDigital dance artists have created visually stunning and intricate choreographies that exemplify exciting possibilities with new digital technologies in the arts.
DanceDigital BYTES has been designed as a modular and mobile project available to groups in different levels of education and in bespoke formats. It can be presented as a performance piece and as educational workshops, where new movement can emerge through playing with the available technologies used for the piece.
