Double Skin/Double Mind Interactive Installation Preview in Amsterdam

the Amsterdam School of the Arts and Cinedans are very happy to  
invite you to the Double Skin/Double Mind Interactive Installation

The Interactive Installation Double Skin/ Double Mind is a virtual  
version of the Double Skin/Double Mind workshop. This workshop, which  
has been taught by dance company Emio Greco | PC since 1996,  
represents the basis of the creative work of choreographers Emio  
Greco and Pieter C. Scholten. Participants in this workshop are  
challenged to discover new interpretations of their dancing body.

Throughout 2006 an interdisciplinary research group, consisting of  
dance notators Eliane Mirzabekiantz and Marion Bastien, motion  
capture researcher Frédéric Bevilacqua, cognitive neuroscientist  
Corinne Jola, media artist Chris Ziegler, cinematography Maite  
Bermudez, artistic research processes Scott de Lahunta and EG | PC  
researcher Bertha Bermudez, has been focusing on this specific  
workshop trying to analyse and document it.

The different data from each research area have been collected, and  
interactive graphic visualisation tools and motion capture were re  
implemented to create this preview of the Interactive Installation  
Double Skin/ Double Mind. The current installation offers  
participants the possibility of taking part in a virtual version of  
the workshop in real time, while receiving verbal, physical and  
peripheral information. By following a life size moving figure, the  
participants will recognize, compare and understand their actions and  
involvement in the practice of this workshop. They will travel  
through the Double Skin/ Double Mind structure in a mental and  
physical way, experiencing what the different layers are.
