Digital Body is a series of ongoing intensive labs dedicated to exploring performance and technology. Each lab is designed to break down preconceived notions about technology and art in order to reimagine from the ground up how technological tools might expand the creation, rehearsal and performance of live artworks. Guided by experts in the fields of dance and technology, and inspired by contributions from guest speakers, this lab series is intended to expand both participants’ practical technical skills as well as their philosophical grounding in the use of technology in performance. The Digital Body project consists of a small, reoccurring group of artists who convene yearly to build on skills and knowledge from previous labs. A Process Blog, maintained by participants, accompanies each lab — follow along in real time by clicking the event links below, or enjoy past lab archives, under the documentation archive tab.
