In November 2020 an interdisciplinary group of students of St. Joost School of Art & Design, the study Communication and Multimedia Design in Breda and professional performers came together to gain knowledge and insight into how to involve the user in the artistic development. During the course of five days, they developed six prototypes for interactive installations.
Noud Heerkens provided the five-day exhibition workshop which stemmed from his research An Invitation to DANCE. Between 2016 and 2019 he developed the interactive installation that organically interlinks dance, cinema and technology. By looking, hearing, moving and associating the visitor can create his ‘own’ story in this installation: the audience becomes a co-author of the work. This concept formed the starting point for new media & performance exhibition workshop.
During the workshop, the participants were divided into six interdisciplinary groups in which they developed an interactive work. The prototype merged live performance with moving image technology to create new forms of embodiment and interaction. The resulting six performances were on display on the 6th of November throughout St. Joost School of Art & Design in Breda.
The short documentary entitled THE COLLAB New Media & Performance shows the workshop process and the final installations.
