Abstract

This paper describes the concept and development of the interactive installation "Pre-Choreographic Movement Kit". It utilizes a dance concept as a starting point to use physical objects for generating movements, using sensor-based motion tracking. The "Pre-Choreographic Movement Kit" is part of the interdisciplinary research project"Pre- Choreographic Alphabet", initiated by Bertha Bermudez and Emio Greco, ICKAmsterdam (International Choreographic Center in Amsterdam) joined by Chris Ziegler (School of Arts Media Engineering ASU, Tempe) for design and development under LABO211. The objective of the research project, is to reflect upon previous artistic work, define methodologies for the articulation of dance experiences using interactive environments for transmission and dissemination of knowledge. Choreographer Emio Greco and Pieter C. Scholten have developed over many years an understanding of dancer's technologies to generate movement material for dance creation. Chris Ziegler cites the idea of "art in a box" first developed by George Maciunas "Fluxkit" (1964), by designing a playful environment for dancers and non-dancers alike. The "PreChoreographic Movement Kit"proposes interactive Objects, generating a physical encounter to"Pre-choreographic Knowledge" of thinking and performing movements.
