Screendance Lab 2: Real-time Screendance

  • Irish World Academy of Music & Dance, University of Limerick Limerick Ireland (map)

With Nicholas Ward and Jürgen Simpson

This hands-on workshop is an introduction to the rich potential of real-time technologies in the creation and presentation of screendance. Drawing upon cinema, digital art, performance and installation art, this workshop explores the potential of non-linear film across a range of contexts. It embraces real-time systems in the organisation and presentation of filmed materials and offers artists conceptual and practical insights into the processes and aesthetic choices. Participants are given the opportunity to work with the key software tools used in performance and gallery art contexts and are introduced to a range of interaction technologies that are prevalent in this area. Discussion will be invited around the challenges of developing work in an expanded cinema and performance context and the future potential of this area.
