Hello World @ RDT

hello-world-at-rdt-91

Jacque (my wife the choreographer) and I were invited to create a dance/technology piece for Repertory Dance Theatre, one of Utah’s major modern dance companies, to be included in their fall show, Embarkon 04-06 October 2012. It was a great experience! We called it “Hello World,” after the computer programming exercise that always represents the first step when learning a new language. (See the Wikipedia entry on “Hello World” programs here.) I created the visuals that were projected during the performance (mostly in Processing) and did the sound design (lots of white noise involved).

Here are some previews/reviews:

In addition, two artistic directors who shall remain unnamed said it was the best use of projections that they had ever seen in a dance performance! (Secret to success: Don’t compete with the dancers.)

(Also, RDT published a study guide for teachers, in which all of the pieces in the show are described. The PDF is available here.)

I hope this is the first of many, many more things to come.
