Dance Transports: Dance & DigitalEvent type: Workshop Part of: Dance Transports
Mon 10 Feb, 10:00am
This one-day workshop led by Yael Flexer & Nic Sandiland will introduce dance artists to ways of working with new digital technologies, offering bespoke technical and artistic support for those interested in developing digital projects.
This workshop will be divided in two parts, the first half beginning with a hands-on skills-based workshop using Isadora software and working with projectors and cameras in a theatrical and installation setting. The second half will focus on projects that participants are currently developing, beginning with surgeries to discuss specific project needs followed by practical investigation in groups.
This dance and digital workshop is led by award-winning choreographer Yael Flexer and installation artist Nic Sandiland. Yael and Nic create live and digital installation work (for theatres, galleries, screens and large outdoor spaces), alongside an extensive programme of commissions and tailor-made training for youth and community groups and professional development settings.
Yael and Nic’s work centres on the generating of a sense of intimacy in live performance and digital installation, in a way which acknowledges the physicality and presence of the viewer. Works offer acute observations on the everyday and the mundane using pedestrian movement and gesture as well as working with dancers and non-dancers as performers within digital works.
