Join us at our next Light Bytes instalment, 'brown bag' (bring your own lunch) informal event with in-progress updates from each of our successful Curiosity Awardees, followed by questions from the audience and informal networking. Creative Scotland will be sharing their plans for the next phase and garnering interest from the audience. Creative Scotland will be inviting BBC and The Space representatives along with other stakeholders and partners.
In-progress talks from the following Curiosity Awardees;
Talk: 12.55-1.15pm Theresa Lynn & Malath Abbas at Biome Collective
“We wish to undertake discussions exploring the possibility of digitally documenting outdoor, site-sensitive, contemporary dance promenade performance. The aim is to propose the means to reproduce any given performance piece, as a 'ghost' of the original performance, for later audiences to experience, crucially, on the original outdoor site.”
Talk: 1.15-1.35pm Bright Side Studios & Janis Claxton Dance
“Harnessing the power of gaming and infrared technology, Bright Side Studios would create a fully interactive environment for Janis Claxton and two of her dancers to explore. We will create an ethereal, mesmerising and unique shared experience utilising live depth data and reactive visuals.”
Talk: 1.35-1.55pm Shaper/ Caper & Retchy (aka Graeme Hawkins)
"We are interested in exploring and testing “Game Over”, an interactive, survival horror performance experience. We wish to explore working with animation and projection mapping to explore building an immersive digital environment that can be controlled by online audiences in order to shock, confine, trap and terrify live audiences through a multi-sensory digital experience!”
