Interview with Scott deLahunta, part 1: On working processes and digital realms

02/9/2011

My next interview from the series of Cognitive of the Performative programme by Centre for Drama Art aka cdu was made during the Workshop with Choreographic Objects that I attended in December, guided by Scott deLahunta.

Scott deLahunta is a former dancer and choreographer, who began working in the mid-1990s as a researcher and coordinator for projects bringing together new media and live performance practices. For years he’s been advocating for creating software tools for choreographers from the environment of emerging new technologies.

Interview with Johannes Birringer, part 1: New media, interactivity and performative arts

02/2/2011

During November and December the Centre for Drama Art aka cdu based in Zagreb organized a series of lectures and a workshop within the programme titled Cognitive of the Performative. The first guest in the series was Johannes Birringer who introduced his latest production Ukiyo on lecture titled Open Score: Performance Technology  that took place in net club Mama.

Johaness Birringer is an performance, video and new media choreographer. He is considered among experts as one the pioneers of media art in performative context. Birringer is the founder of the theatre company AlienNation Co., new media laboratory Interaktionslabor, and the wearable technology project DAP-Lab.

I would need an extra blog post just to name and list all of his projects, books, universities and departments  he was involved with during his career. Thus, I decided to make this interview as a full scan of his work and his current thoughts on what shall we do with interactivity in performing arts.
