In this paper, we report a real-time gesture driven interactive system with multimodal feedback for performing arts, especially dance. The system consists of two major parts: a gesture recognition engine and a multimodal feedback engine. The gesture recognition engine provides real-time recognition of the performer's gesture based on the 3D marker coordinates from a marker-based motion capture system. According to the recognition results, the multimodal feedback engine produces associated visual and audio feedback to the performer. This interactive system is simple to implement and robust to errors in 3D marker data. Satisfactory interactive dance performances have been successfully created and presented using the reported system.
