The significant and international response to this initiative demonstrated the value placed on interdisciplinary collaboration between dance and digital artists.
The selected dance and digital artists vision for this interdisciplinary exchange is responsive and inspiring. The artists worked on research, development, investigation and ideas, alongside mentors and contributors from the dance and technology sectors.
