Project description

In translating dance movements into sign, important information about dance experience and embodied expression tend to be lost. MoCap (Motion Capture) is a movement retrieval technology that articulates the interaction between basic gestures and music patterns. This research project aims at finding new opportunities and possibilities of digital media for dance analysis and notation based on the dance performance Fase - Four Movements to the Music of Steve Reich (1982) by the Flemish choreographer Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker and her dance ensemble ROSAS.
