At the risk of sounding ill-formed and naive I must ask what are the terms of engagement for dance-tech? Could this list accommodate compact and global laboratories in which operational test-beds for advancing new ideas, performance platforms and performer-audience spectra's occur and provide conversations in which in-depth analysis can begin before, or as, artists publish to live audiences, independent blog sites and on the conference circuit? Could this list actually embrace dance and technology in its very form and function? I agree with Johannes and Marlon, that this forum could benefit from rigorously coordinating participant research and active rejuvenation.body, space, time and technologies appropriate to each type of enquiry loosely associated with dance-tech. I apologise for my lapse in concentration too but I must ask again what are the terms of dance-tech engagement really about? Moreover, how could the dance-tech list evolve like/ with/ or as the art? To start with a strictly defined e-list formulae is to embed presumptuous limitations onto our discussion...so bring on your samples, 'casts, beams and streams I say, and reinvigorate the terms of engagement. I am certainly interested in the questions, the products, the actions and processes at play here and I am keen to have a discussion on what dance-tech might mean in 20 years time. For instance, who is choreographing for the elderly, the unborn, space-farers and nanobots? What will dance-tech become outside of the hive I wonder? And have you seen Holmes comet?
