Mānoa Campus, Krauss Hall 12
For the past 40 years, artists have been experimenting with the interaction and transmission of dancing bodies on screen, performers in projection design in live performance, and more recently through movement improvisation sessions in live telematic internet broadcast and virtual exchange.
This talk looks at the work of artists who have experimented with screendance and live interactivity in performance art, and explores concepts of embodiment/disembodiment in the performance of dancing digital bodies.
