Immersive Media Dance Integrating in Telematic Environment

Dance has always existed within the context of society. As society changes, it reframes dance. Today, dance is framed by the technology that surrounds us.
IMMEDIATE project aims to encourage creativity and innovation in the field of dance performances intersecting digital arts. Through bringing together partners with different cultural backgrounds the project will explore novel possibilities of performances combining real and virtual dancers in mixed-reality environments while creating long-term learning opportunities for comparing and integrating different cultural implications of dance across Europe.
IMMEDIATE will support mobility of young choreographers, dancers as well as new media artists and technology experts through a series of workshops and residencies with a main objective to encourage creation, presentation, and promotion of dance performances of the future.
Distributed mixed-reality performances will reframe contemporary dance forms in a perspective of emerging technologies such as digital real-time performance tools, three-dimensional motion-capture facilities and systems supporting on-line “intelligent stages” allowing for collaborative tele-immersive experiments that combine technical excellence in dancers’ own bodies with creative excellence in virtual computer technologies.

This work programme has been funded with support from the European Commission.
