Janus/Ghost Stories

Dancer interacting with her projected double
 

 

Janus/Ghost Stories was a telematic performance articulating the concept of "distributed choreography (see Digital Dancing, 1998). The dance was presented at the International Dance and Technology Conference on February 27, 1999, synchronizing two performance locations: Arizona State University and University of California, Irvine. We used a two-way videoconference system over broadband networks, rather than Web broadcasts (i.e. one-way streaming media). The creation of choreography in a video-conferencing environment, Janus/Ghost Stories, served as a model for further explorations in structuring and distributing dance over the Internet. This work is an outgrowth of Cassandra Project (1996) and prior to my current work using Internet2 for distributed choreography (see Songs of Sorrow, Songs of Hope (2002)
