ENTERTAINMENT (Dancer Driven Visualization - CyberPRINT)

The CROMDI Arts & Entertainment Team has worked in collaboration with Yacov Sharir, an internationally renowned multimedia choreographer and director of a professional dance company, to design, build and perform an interactive "artistic" audio-visual expression of a performer's movement and physiology.

Physiologic monitoring equipment is mounted on the dancer: the data produced during the dancer's performance drives the artistic visual display, based on Team's algorithms and design. This is the first technology-mediated performance of this kind.

In May 2000, in conjunction with the Repertory Dance Theatre and Yacov Sharir the group had 9 performances at the Rose Wagner Performance Center in Salt Lake City (Fig. 1-3). Based on the success of these performances the group was invited to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and to Austin, Texas.

Ongoing projects. In 2001 the team plans to investigate the development of an EEG biofeedback device that would give dancers valuable information about how to control body movements and positioning. More performances enhancements of CyberPRINT are scheduled in 2001, including in Connecticut at the Eighth Biennial Arts and Technology Symposium at Connecticut College.
