Join us for a Media and Dance Workshop on island of Gotland, Sweden August 04-10, 2011 to learn what the “Gotland Nexus- Bringing it North” has to offer.
Gotland Nexus - Bringing it NorthIs a meeting point or Nexus for new media artists and dancers, choreographers living in the Nordic region. This Nexus is in the form of an interdisciplinary research in action educational residency tailored for the Nordic region. It aims to impart new media skills, increase networking and collaborative opportunities between Nordic artists and the rest of the world.
The visiting artists will practice pitching, pre-production, developing ideas, new procedures, practice their craft and above all network with each other. This research-in-action residency or Nexus will provide the artist with the opportunity to practice DIT, “Doing it together” rather than DIY – do it yourself, learning and creating by collaboration…
Gotland NexusFocuses on the creative work intimate to the nature engaging participants in a dialogue of mutual influence involving movement, visuals and sound. It supports body-centered performance practices integrated with software systems for motion tracking, live video processing and documentation experiments.
