engineer Frieder Weiss who has designed many interactive music , dance and art 

The lab will offer a series of parallel modules investigating the relations 
between choreography and software (featuring the popular workshop  "Whatever 
Dance Toolbox", introduced by BADco., one of the most dance companies current 
working in Europe) sound and motion-design, movement capture and 3d 
digital/virtual environment navigation, light and projection architecture,
