Sõltumatu Tantsu Lava is a partner for a two year project called Moving Digits: Augmented Dance for Engaged
Audience, where an international group of choreographers have researched digital technology, its dimensions in dance art and strategies involving the audience. Software specialists from the University of Applied Sciences Düsseldorf (Hochschule Düsseldorf, Germany) and the Portuguese Interactive Technologies Institute (M-ITI, Portugal) have developed prototypes in collaboration with these artists. Following workshops in Tallinn, Funchal and Düsseldorf, the project will come to a final stage with the choreographers in Tallinn in March 2020.
The fourth and final workshop will take place on 9th—13th March 2020 and will end with a public showing on the 13th 19:00.
The project is co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.
On 18th–19th February Sõltumatu Tantsu Lava hosted a workshop for initial ideas around movement, body sensing, visualization, sonification.
Second workshop was held on 17–20th June in Portugal, hosted by the Madeira Interactive Technologies Institute (M-ITI).
As a next step of MODI was an artistic residency on 5–16th of August in Tallinn, at STL, where 4 selected choreographers from previous workshops were asked to develop their ideas on the connections between dance and technology.
On 22nd–26th of October the third Moving Digits workshop took place in Düsseldorf, hosted by Hochschule Düsseldorf and tanzhaus nrw. In this workshop, the concepts developed by four artists during the Moving Digits artistic residency in August were further refined, and presented to an audience.
