Guest of honor : Bernado Guiamba and Benedito Cossa, dancers and choreographers, Cie Esculturas Humanas based in Maputo, Mozambic.
In this workshop the point was to survey and explore the impact of recent developments of new digital technologies on the performance of movement, choreography and image construction within multimedia systems for performances or installations. We investigated the coupling of movement and image and the creative/aesthetics potential of working with real-time interactive software, portable devices...
Geared to professional dancers, choreographers, filmmakers and interdisciplinary artists teams, the emphasis was on collaborative experimentation on the prototyping of multimedia works exploring the intersection of image and movement production and mediation.
