Tideline performance at the MMT Graduate Show 2014

An interactive dance performance using the Kinect and Processing.

Tideline is a dance performance with interactive visuals, and is part of my thesis made for the completion of an M.Phil in Music & Media Technologies at Trinity College, Dublin. 

Research on body movement, visual language and scenography was used to convey an emotional story in a performance that uses a combination of technology, the human body and visuals. 

The dancer interacts with the visuals via a Kinect, set up in front of her. This information is imported and manipulated in Processing to create the interactive visuals. The music is pre-recorded with me controlling the changes in the sketches, synchronised to the music.
