Abstract:
In this talk, I trace the various approaches that I have followed in integrating technologies in dance. I describe how I apply first person methodologies including research through practice, user-centred design and ethnographic and phenomenological methods in order to design technologies that support creating, learning, performing and archiving dance. I describe several artworks and interactive systems that I developed in which I focus on dance vocabularies including that of Rudolf Laban Movement Analysis, vocabularies that are idiosyncratic to choreographers that I collaborated with and those emerging from my own research-creation endeavours. I present how I choreograph dance pieces that integrate these interactive technologies in order to provoke critical questions. While providing poetic experiences, my artworks enact experimental situations that enable critical reflection on issues around how art can contribute to knowledge or around how humans co-exist with each other and with technologies.
