Abstract:

  • Panel: Motion Capture and Dance: what it can do, what it can’t do, and what it should never attempt

    Mo­tion cap­ture pro­vides ‘snap­shots’ of the com­plex­ity of move­ment pat­tern­ing. This pre­sen­ta­tion ex­plores how this com­plex­ity can be mapped to spe­cific vari­ables for analy­sis, and what such analy­ses both re­veal and mask in re­la­tion to the chore­o­graphic prac­tices in­volved, draw­ing on my three-year col­lab­o­ra­tion with math­e­mati­cian Vicky Mak-Hau and bio­mech­anist Richard Smith at the Deakin Motion.Lab in Mel­bourne, Aus­tralia. The paper ex­plores how can these analy­ses can po­ten­tially drive cre­ative processes in dance, and, through a dis­cus­sion of per­for­mance pro­ject Choreoto­pog­ra­phy, how real-time mo­tion cap­ture can vi­su­al­ize and en­hance spa­tial path­ways using 3D stereo­scopic pro­jec­tion.
