Kate Sicchio:This presentation outlined previous experiences that have contributed to beginning PhD research, as well as discussed the starting points for the research itself.
This PhD will focus on the ontology of real time systems and the content of dance performances, which utilize them. By creating a mapping of relationships between specific systems (e.g. video tracking, biosensors, etc.) and elements of choreography such as space, movement, performer and sound, a potential framework of how these systems may change the content of a dance work will be explored.
