Kun je met technologie improviseren op de vloer in een theatermaakproces? Hoe moet je zoiets doen?

Zaterdag 19 juni 2010
Huis aan de Werf, Grote zaal

Het gebruik van technologie in het theater is zo oud als het theater zelf. Hedendaagse technologische ontwikkelingen gaan echter zo snel dat theatermakers niet alle innovaties kunnen bijhouden en integreren. In een theatermaakproces waar improvisatie en maken op de vloer een rol speelt lijkt complexe technologie vaak een belemmering voor de creatieve flow van het moment. Zowel technologie als de maker moeten zich aanpassen om samen te kunnen werken.

Deze theatrale lezing, een zogenaamde Performance Lecture, is een lezing met illustratieve theatrale momenten, geïnspireerd door Franz Kafka’s The Metamorphosis. Hiervoor wordt
gebruik gemaakt van de Performance Engine, een door de onderzoeksgroep ontwikkelt prototype van een interactief systeem  die improvisatie mogelijk maakt met digitale media.

News and agenda

02feb_11uur_joris01On the 28th of January the CBKU (centre for visual arts Utrecht) has opened its doors in a new renovated location in the centre of Utrecht. Cross media artist Maurice Bogaert has designed a whole concept around this opening.

Part of this concept is the installation of six scale models of the space given to six Art institutes in Utrecht. Each scale model can be seen at the six art institutes locations through a live webcam-feed. One of them has been placed in the CBKU space. On this particular model Z25.org projects a sequence of several animations by several artist in such a way that the perspective of the projected images is precisely the same as the physical model.

Have a look at the six webcam-feeds here: http://www.kunstinutrecht.nl/ots/
The Z25.org model is the second feed from the top.
Or read more about the project at the website of Z25.org: http://www.z25.org/cbkam

One of the animations has been made by joris Weijdom as part of his research on Mixed Reality applications. See the movie below.

The other Artists are:

  • Martin Boverhof
  • Machiel Veltkamp
  • Pyhai Jin
  • Jan Willem Deiman
  • Wim van Eck
  • Arnaud Loonstra
