CultureHub Live-Wired Presents: Distance Dances
December 1 / 9PM EST
47 Great Jones St, 3rd Floor.
Admission Free / Limited space available
Join us for a live multi-location creative exchange between eighteen dancers in two countries! Using telepresence technology, students from the NYU Gallatin School and students from the Seoul Institute of the Arts in Korea will be able to join together to devise work with one another over thousands of miles of space. Each student will have a chance to create a 1 minute solo movement piece to share with their partner in the other country, via the networked screen. After sharing, both students images will be composited together to allow them to collaborate on an improvised duet. This exciting exchange of ideas will be presented to a live audience in New York and Korea, as well as available to watch as a livestream on Culturehub.org.
When & Where
Culturehub SeoulArts/La MaMa
Culturehub was born out of the desire to further develop the long-standing relationship between the Seoul Institute of the Arts in Korea and La MaMa e.t.c. in New York. At the core, Culturehub values cross-cultural, artistic collaboration and it is our belief that artists, working in all mediums, must continue to experiment with new and developing technologies.
Currently, Culturehub consists of two Telepresence Studios. These mirrored spaces, link the two organizations through the use of digital technology and virtual space. Our goal is to create an international hub for artists, scholars, innovators and students. Through our collaborative projects, we hope to develop a method of exchange, which can be duplicated on a global scale, bridging the gap between art, technology and science; as well as further broadening the ability for artists and audiences to interact with one another over distance.
