E-Space MuPop-Interactive Dance Exhibition & Performance
Open to all
The Europeana Space Dance Pilot is happy to share its latest tool Qandr which is our multiscreen audience engaging tool. Before the Un-Symposium and during registration to the event, enjoy the interactive dance exhibition which allows the audience to explore cultural heritage images while watching live dancing. The PopUp Museum will include a live dance performance in front of a screen which will be controlled by the audience. Using your smart phone and/or any android device, the audience can connect to the screen and control what the dancer and other audience members see.
The pop up museum and performance are free and open to all delegates. All are welcome to dance, watch and interact. Instructions on technology will be provided the day of the sharing. For more information, please feel free to get in touch with Rosa Cisneros.

SomaticApp - Dance, digital software design and inclusive practice
This project aims to bring together expertise across disciplines of health and dance to develop the concept of an app that can be used by students to promote self awareness and relaxation through mindful movement. This can also be linked to dealing with related physical recurring pain such as neck and shoulder pain from desk work, etc. In particular, it will draw on somatic movement practices which are a group of activities that link body and mind for wellbeing such as Feldenkrais and Alexander technique.
Call for Proposals; Digital Echoes Symposium 2017
For the 6th edition of the Digital Echoes Symposium, we want to turn our attention to the generation, uses and distribution of digital dance data, asking critical questions stemming from the re-forming and re-contextualisation of dance through digitisation, about its effect on the ontology, form and potentials of dance (and data), about dance digitisation as an emergent practice and what it may mean for future artistic and academic endeavours, for spectatorship, education and disciplinary exchange.
