DIGITAL FUTURES IN DANCE
Part of Brighton Digital Festival

 

As part of this year’s Brighton Digital Festival, The Basement plays host to a series of residencies, performances and public discussions connecting dance and technology.Following a collaborative residency with Australian born UK-based choreographer and dancer Matthew Morris (DV8, Siobhan Davies) French dance mavericks Le Clair Obscur present their own version of Sleeping Beauty, in which French dancer Sandra Devaux, encased in a glass coffin, connects to her audience via Facebook.

 

 

A public discussion on the future of dance and technologies will bring together an outstanding panel of digital dance and screen-dance experts. Facilitated by Genevieve Smith-Nunes, the event will be streamed live online. Brighton based international artist Billy Cowie presents  his stunning new 3D dance film Art of Movement,  co-commissioned by South East Dance. Finally, we present a special preview launch of Pulse Dance Game, the new Dance gaming app developed by Pavilion Dance South West. The game’s creators will be out and about in Brighton testing the app on Brighton’s unsuspecting residents and visitors, then sharing their findings back at The Basement.
