Welcome to the < Rehearsal Series: Media Choreographies > wiki!
The Rehearsal Series workshops offer a blueprint for exploring choreographic meaning and notions of embodiment within digital media environments — leading to reflection on programming and being programmed:
How can we move away from pre-choreographed environments and move towards building our own choreographies? How can we find alternatives to fixed ways of building space-time conditions within digital and physical spheres? How can we rethinking composition, participation, relations and articulations between bodies and technologies?
A critical and exploratory approach to how the human movement, perception and embodiment work may give artistic and programming practices new (and more critical) pointers.
About the author:
My name is Joana Chicau, I am a designer, live coder, researcher with a background in dance. I run a trans-disciplinary research project which interweaves media design and web environments with performance and choreographic practices. The project follows Free/Libre Open Source (Floss) models.
Recent work includes an investigation on Eshkol Wachman Movement Notation; a new project on the Japanese dance expression Butoh and a project published on the online VR Internet Moon Gallery.
Since 2014 I have been integrating different communities within media art/ software studies /critique to create new alternative circuits within the technological sphere of programming languages; and the possible encounters with the sensory-motor structures that regulate our bodies and movements. Recently I started co-organizing live coding events with a Q&A between the performers and the audience, which focused on issues of transparency, accessibility, inclusion and gender equality within this practices.
