Coreofonie – il suono della danza

20 October 2017, 5pm - Casa Paganini

Meet the choreographer Virgilio Sieni

Panel discussion:  Dance, Science and Technology, the history of Virgilio Sieni's "Atlante del Gesto_Genova" and scientific experiments of the DANCE project.

A new step in the "Atlante del Gesto_Genova" Project: current results and new goals will be detailed by the following Participants:  Serena Bertolucci (Palazzo Reale Genova), Antonio Camurri (University of Genova), Roberta Canu (Goethe-Institut  Genua), Federica Loredan (perfomer), Stefania Opisso (Teatro Archivolto, Genova) e Laura Santini (editor of Atlante del gesto_Genova Facebook page).

The meeting will focus on future developments of the "path" between Science and Art:

  • Can a scientific and technological project turn into a lyrical and popular show? Is it possible to involve hundreds of citizens to encourage them to come back to live in hidden and precious secret spaces of their cultural heritage, to create a community through the emotion of Art?
  • Can a shared artistic and social experiment generate a new technological and scientific research, in order to create reflections, soliciting thoughts and solutions, offering alternative knowledge paradigms?

Organized by: Casa Paganini – InfoMus , in collaboration with: Goethe Institut of GenovaTeatro ArchivoltoRete DanzaContempoLigure.

Europa: Gestures of History, Dancing Science and Art not to forget EU identity

Performance at "La Lanterna", Rome

March 23rd 2017

This performance took place in occasion of the dinner at the celebration of the Treaty of Rome, at La Lanterna structure by Massimiliano Fuksas, on invitation of the EU DG Connect. The objective was to tell metaphorically the narration of the birth and evolution of Europe by means of a short choreographic action, enhanced by an interactive sonification amplifying the qualities of dancer’s movement.

During this performance the DANCE platform was used for real-time recognition of two expressive qualities (i.e., Lightness and Fragility) from the movement data captured by inertial sensors and sonification. Sonification design by Andrea Cera.
