Abstract

Movement-based interactive dance has recently attracted great interest in the performing arts. While utilizing motion capture technology, the goal of this project was to design the necessary real-time motion analysis engine, staging, and communication systems for the completion of a movement-based interactive multimedia dance performance. The movement analysis engine measured the correlation of dance movement between three people wearing similar sets of retro-reflective markers in a motion capture volume. This analysis provided the framework for the creation of an interactive dance piece, Lucidity, which will be described in detail. Staging such a work also presented additional challenges. These challenges and our proposed solutions will be discussed. We conclude with a description of the final work and a summary of our future research objectives.
