RAM CAMP in Kyoto 2017 Work in Progress Presentation 

Programming evolves dance

As an exchange program within “Culture City of East Asia 2017 Kyoto,” Kyoto Experiment brings together dancers, choreographers and programmers from China, South Korea and Japan for a five-day intensive workshop. Yamaguchi Center for Arts and Media [YCAM] has directed the Reactor for Awareness in Motion (RAM) R&D project since 2010, exploring new ways to make choreography through the use of virtual dance environments. Employing the toolkit developed by YCAM, the participants will devise original forms of dance through a process of learning about and understanding each other’s creative methods. The final day of the workshop will feature presentations of the results to the general public.

Profile

Yamaguchi Center for Arts and Media [YCAM]

Yamaguchi Center for Arts and Media [YCAM] is an art center in Yamaguchi City in southern Japan.

 

Since opening in 2003, YCAM’s activities have explored new forms of artistic expression using media technology, carrying out research and development while working with a wide range of artists and researchers on comprehensive and long-term projects from initial investigation to experimentation and output.

 

Reactor for Awareness in Motion (RAM) is an R&D project started by YCAM in 2010, proposing new forms of dance creativity and education through technology. Aiming to attain a more advanced fusion of technology and dance, the project brings together various specialists, including the dancer Yoko Ando, to develop a motion capture system and software. The project’s original toolkit, RAM Dance Toolkit, displays an avatar showing the movements of a dancer recorded in real time by the motion capture system. It is also possible through programming to make it seem like the dancer (avatar) is dancing in a virtual environment with somewhat futuristic movements such as turning the body upside down. The dancer moves while watching how they interact with this impossible virtual environment, inspiring new dance ideas.
