Interactive Dance: Looking at Space through the Eyes of the Matrix

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademicpeer-review


Pieter Verstraete deals in this chapter with contemporary experiments in interactive dance. He is particularly interested in the re-configuration of body and technology through digital interfaces. In his case study of Mes Jours et Mes Nuits (2002) by the dancer and choreographer Michele Noiret, Verstraete demonstrates how the dancer and multi media spaces relate to each other, comparable to the relation of a musician to his/her musical instrument
