Augmenting Live Performance

Sorcha Hassett

Visualising Movement Using Smart Textiles

This project is an aesthetic inquiry into the use of smart textiles to create a counter point layer to the traditional paradigm of live movement performance and choreography and represent the kinesthetic experience of dance and movement performers. This project describes the steps taken to create a performance system which uses a smart textile sleeve to facilitate nonverbal communication between a choreographer and performer, tracking the movement responses of the performer to the nonverbal communication for use in real time data visualisation.
