Four new choreographies involving dance and technology were created – A Dance to Remember, Connection Retrieval, E-motional Landscapes and The Beautiful Glitch. They were presented in public performances in two major dance venues in Estonia (16th August 2019 at Sõltumatu Tantsu Lava,Tallinn) and Germany (26th October 2019 at Tanzhaus NRW, Düsseldorf). In relation to their creation process and documentation, 4 new software tools for interactive visuals in dance performances and 4 VR dance pieces have been created. They are indented to be used by artists and creative professionals and are available for download on the project website.
Multiple research studies conducted during the project resulted in 6 scientific publications on the topic of the artistic and design process of creating dance performances with technology, audience studies and reviews of related work on dance and technology. Though the course of the project activities, the project team also developed design, technical and digitisation methods specifically adapted for working with dancers and choreographers. They include a multi-stage co-design approach, involving artists in the development of the technological solutions for dance, 2 new models for incorporating digital technologies for the stage and development of an approach for adapting dance performances to VR. In relation to the audience studies, there have been important findings regarding how audiences perceive and value the inclusion of technology in dance.
Some of these results have been presented in the final project exhibition organized by the Hochschule Düsseldorf on 17th and 18th September 2020 in Düsseldorf. All the other materials developed during the course of the project are available for viewing of downloading on the official project website.
