  • New Interfaces for Dance panel intro



  • A Proposal from Anomos

    Within the frame of the reconfiguration which digital technologies are adding to the universe of artistic creativity, it is becoming more and more urgent to think about the type of relation between the body and the digital environment and thus to first consider the interface aspect. Traditionally, interface is defined as the surface which brings in contact two or more heterogenous systems. In the context of the new medias, it is a device which ensures the communication between two or more different computer systems and which performs the task of transcoding and the handling of the flow of information. The panel, around which are gathered choreographers, theorists and computer experts, will discuss the question of the notion of the interface between the body and the machine, movement and sound, dance and music.
