Cinedans - Workshop Interfacing as Performance

Although these days new technology is by no means an unknown in the worlds of dance and theatre, there are obstacles to using them in practice. As a choreographer or director how can you best ensure that using and developing technical tools runs in parallel with the process on the floor? How should you go about making it a fully real and active part of your choreography?

Theatermaker Marloeke van der Vlugt will take a practical and physical approach to introduce filmmakers to technology. Vann der Vlugt and the workshop participants will look into ways sound and visuals can be influenced live by touch and movement, using tactile interfaces such as conductive fabrics. An explanation will also be given of how easily you can make these interfaces yourself.

Marloeke van der Vlugt will be using her own work and practical examples as a basis for the workshop, but participants are more than welcome to bring in their own material and research-oriented questions.

Marloeke van der Vlugt is a theatre maker, artist and researcher. She is currently conducting research into the relationships between movement, technology and the bodily experience. Van der Vllugt is currently affiliated as a tutor with the Utrecht University of the Arts (HKU) and as a researcher with HKU Research Centre Performative Processes.
