The project focused on choreographic and scenographic exchange between dancers and projected digital images within a theatrical context. It investigated a set of interrelationships between performer, projection and technical operator, where the operator becomes a ‘performer’ both controlling and being spontaneously present in the digital image on stage.
Work that directly integrates performance and technologist in both process and performance is still rare. Collaborative methods that facilitate such integration deserve further exploration for the combined benefit of both academic and professional communities. This research project sought to identify the underlying processes of our work as collaborators from the fields of performance and new technologies, within the context of a performance research laboratory.
Projecting Performance was funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
