as part of the Oltre le mura / Beyond the walls project
New Departures is an event that intends to explore new technologies, and in particular Virtual Reality in relation to the performing arts, starting from the experience of CREW, a Belgian collective, pioneeer in this field.
The event, with the collaboration of Ecosistemi Artificiali, takes place in hybrid mode, in person and online, with the following programme:
– a live video connection with Brussels during which Eric Joris & Isjtar, multidisciplinary artists, and Haryo Sukmawanto, technician, will accompany the public around the CREW studio and tell its history in order to illustrate their main principles for VR that support the use and notion of a transitional space: liveness, movement, tactility, inside-outside scenography as well as the (non)necessity for storytelling, the role of the performer, the statute of the immersant
– live demo will also be presented that shows the techniques/tools/technology that CREW has developed in the last two years in in two successive EU research programmes: PRESENT and MAX-R. www.upf.edu/web/max-r and that they want to work out further in the upcoming projects: scanning, Greek Chorus, large area, multiplayer.
– a time for questions from the public and students from IED Istituto Europeo di Design and discussion, moderated by Cecilia Lentini and Giordano Fiacchini, on the issues and horizons opened by new technologies in their application in the field of artistic creation
