I’m currently working on WholoDance where we are nearly one year in to the project and starting to think about user testing different prototypes of a learning and choreographic tool that involves visualisations of the dancer to enable embodied feedback. I have also been involved with the preparation of an AHRC application with Simon Ellis called Screen Bodies: a really interesting project that will be exploring and questioning the interaction and use of screens in dance and how screens act on us, the consumer.
At the heart of both of these projects is a practical application of screen content to better engage with dance. It excites a passion and love I have for dance and digital technology. It has made me think differently about my own work with the Stream Project. The next phase for us is to investigate immersive environments which will involve digital technology and the help of a creative coder. It’s a very exciting ‘digital’ time ahead.
