This is an earlier dance work produced by the Danish Dance Theather, in collaboration with programmers Ole Kristensen and Jonas Jongejan, entitled Body Navigation. Unlike the other software, which was developed using OpenFrameworks, all the technology for this performance was built in Processing.

This suite of 3 duets, was developed at an installation exploring the relationships between “wo/man and technology”. I believe that this was one of their first collaborations and explorations into the world of dance/technology, and I feel like that were able to create some very interesting interactions. My personal favorite is the human pong, in which two dancers move their paddles based on their movements within a particular space. For me this interaction allows the technology to play more of an active role, rather than the passive/decorative role I had seen it play in later works.
