The workshop tanz digital - Technologies, Methods, Artistic Strategies invites to exchange experiences, knowledge and skills on artistic application areas of digital technologies.

On four consecutive days, choreographers, dancers, media artists and scientists will present their artistic and scientific strategies for the digital space and their personal approach to digital technologies. We will feature contributions on virtual and augmented reality, motion capture, and gaming, among others.

There will also be a debate on the extent to which digital tools, technologies and spaces take on a political function or discuss political realities. In the internal hands-on part of the workshop, professional dance practitioners will discuss the application parameters of the technologies from an aesthetic, technological and administrative perspective.

We are looking forward to contributions from, among others, Björn Lengers (CyberRäuber), Marina Dessau, Yui Kawaguchi and others on January 14. at 6 pm, who will discuss questions of the digital presence of dance in the digital opening slot of the workshop. The subsequent professional workshop will take place internally.
