Workshop “Tanz und Technologie | Body and Technology” Katharina Christl in collaboration with the Trans-Media-Akademie Hellerau (TMA) within the framework of the ImproWinter 09 at the Palucca school Dresden, 9 to 13 February 2009.
Movement course in interactive sound-image spaces: an especially developed Camera Motion Sensing system enables direct links between physical movement and virtual environments. In collaboration with the media artists Matthias Härtig and Jacob Korn, dancers/ performers can discover and control their own individual sound and image environment in real time. The unique software Kalypso by Frieder Weiß (more information: http://www.frieder-weiss.de) and the long-term project developments of the TMA, facilitate dance improvisation as movement research in virtual environments and surprising approaches to physical self-perception.
In the photo you can see two dancers testing the sound space.
