Goldsmiths Mocap Streamer showcases four collaborative projects through a day of demo, workshop, and performance.
Bringing regional and international work back to London alongside new research initiatives, Goldsmiths Mocap Streamer showcases four collaborative projects through a day of demo, workshop, and performance. All work is informed by innovation in motion-capture exploration of avatar embodiment, communication, and interaction in shared virtual spaces.
1. Playscape: How to Build a Galaxy - a live installation performance with connected interactive workshops by Katie Dale-Everett Dance. Playscape is an immersive performance installation performed by dancers or played with by participants that combines dance, motion capture technology and visuals to open-up new possibilities for physical, social and digital connection between people.
2. Figural Bodies VR experience/documentary - UK premiere. Figural Bodies, created by the Mocap Streamer team with Candoco Dance, is research towards deconstructing mocap data from its enforced normative algorithms, celebrating subversion and difference in the immersive representation of bodies. The dancers communicate through a co-created movement vocabulary, using motion data and machine learning to push the boundaries of how bodies can be represented in the Metaverse.
3. DISCORDANCE - live dance performance and VR experience by Clemence Debaig of Unwired Dance Theatre - Exploring themes of belonging, multi-identities, otherness and the search for human connection, DISCORDANCE is a one-of-a-kind hybrid performance featuring dancers in London and New York connected in real-time, using motion capture and VR.
4. Digital Dance Studio - demo and workshop of a digital dance compositional software tool created by Alexander Whitley Dance Company. An innovative user-focussed immersive software app for digital choreographic composition, planning, teaching, learning, and rehearsal. It offers a simple and intuitive immersive interface for creation and manipulation of choreographic sequences in virtual space.
