Capturing Stillness

Capturing Stillness at the Palais De Danse drop-in Salon

Coventry University – 21st February 5-7 pm

Capturing Stillness uses performance capture and computer game worlds to create transformative experiences derived from Skinner Releasing Technique and its poetics. For this presentation Ruth Gibson and Bruno Martelli will describe the project’s background and context, commenting on their current artistic practice & their future residency at CAFKA/Christie Digital Systems in Canada – where they will be developing immersive stereo 3D environments with the aim of creating a kinaesthetic code.

The event will be in the form of a drop-in salon, opening up the projects advances in the motion capture studio – including a demonstration of MocApp – an AR iPhone motion capture viewer app developed with Alex Woolner (SGI), Daniel Skolvi (motion.lab) & Melbourne based programmer Scott Ashton who has previously worked with media art pioneer Jeffrey Shaw.

Palais de Danse is a series of presentations, discussion and works-in-progress reflecting on the Capturing Stillness project, research into the relationship of motion/performance capture and dance in the creation of immersive environments, focussing on the poetic imagery cited in the pedagogy of Joan Skinner. A celebration of Ruth Gibson’s three year AHRC Fellowship in the Creative and Performing Arts, this event follows one held in London during December 2012 where experienced SRT dancers involved in the Capturing Stillness project came together to share ideas and thoughts about the project.
