Notch and Green Hippo specialise in the design and manufacturing of hardware and software for manipulation of video in the AV industry. In April they commissioned Bawren to choreograph and perform in an interactive demo in Germany. Bawren had the opportunity to wear a motion capture suit and see his movements digitalised on a screen, displaying real-time visual effects, backgrounds and avatars.
This month Bawren held a fascinating R&D session with the production team to understand how the technology works and how far it can be taken by the body.
This combination of real-time motion capture and dance opens many creative possibilities. Bawren has been inspired to incorporate motion capture in his new work in order to create an innovative performance of both futuristic technology and the earthbound art of dance. This exceptional work will premier in 2020.
