This is by invitation of the British Council and will be part of a
festival/event entitled "Open Windows on Europe", an international
multimedia project taking place in Kulturhuset, Stockholm, Sweden 14-24
April 1998, involving 8 countries.
The other countries participating are: Germany, Austria, Poland, Greece,
Czech Republic, Finland and France - each contributing
<http://www.comedia.se/fonster98/> tells you a little but not a lot more...
I thought that it would be important to locate Digital Dancing in the
context of "what's happening" in British Electronic Arts (etc.) as well as
show digital work that actually involves a performing human being and is
not entirely screen-based...
We will offer three types of activity:
1. We will be working/choreographing/rehearsing/programming in the
background through-out the day on both days - people will be welcome to
watch and if engage in conversations as & when...
2. We will offer short (10 / 15 min?) performances of work-in-progress at
1400 and 1800 each of the two days.
3. We will present short lecture/demonstrations at 1530-1630 on each of the
two days. NB these will be "hands-on" and will allow a few (3 or 4 max?)
people to actually try out being fitted up in the motion capture
Other Digi-Brit contributors include:
Lisa Haskell showing excerpts from photo 98/ and highlights from Lovebyte
Festival, LEA vids/cdroms etc: Adrian Freidli from Humberside Arts Board &
