I am honored to be able to aggregate and present the video documentation of he 1st. International Conference on “Multimodal Communication: Language, Performance and Digital Media” that was organized in the framework of TKB – A Transmedia Knowledge-Base For Performing Arts research project conclusion (

It was  aimed to: present the results and software tools developed during the TKB project; provide a multidisciplinary forum for researchers from different disciplines and artists interested in the documentation of Performing Arts (with a focus on contemporary theatrical dance and Performance), as well as in issues of multimodality in human communication and in human-computer interaction, particularly regarding video annotation tools and collaborative platforms for cultural heritage.

The event wished to bring together contemporary artists and researchers from a broad range of academic disciplines, working within different theoretical and methodological paradigms in a creative, internationally oriented, and stimulating atmosphere. The importance of multimodal communication and creativity is now generally recognised by researchers from either the Humanities, Information Technologies or Cognitive Science. This conference has therefore offered an opportunity to present and learn about research findings concerning human behaviour and agency in different types of communication and their cognitive, cultural, narrative, technological, social, textual or discourse functions.

It was organized by the FCSH and the FCT of Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Portugal, and has taken place at the CCB, Lisbon, from the 2nd to the 3rd May 2013.

Keynote speakers:
Sally Jane Norman (Attenborough Centre for Creative Arts, Sussex: UK)
Charles Forceville (Universiteit van Amsterdam, NL)
Irene Mittelberg, Aachen University

About the artistst:

Adina Bar-On, Israel, 1951. Adina Bar-On is a pioneer performance artist in
Israel. She toured around Asia, including Hong Kong, last year with
Seiji Shimoda, the award winning Japanese
performance artist. In the past 30 years, Bar-On has produced more than 20 performance pieces. An
exhibition of her video works and photographic documentation of her
works will be held in Para/Site Art Space from July to August. Bar-On
will perform her new work «Disposition» outdoor.
Since 1973, Bar-On started to experiment with performance. She makes use of her body
movement and voice to communicate with the audience. Her work
emphasizes interaction and connection. Audience’s emotion follows
Bar-On’s behaviour. She breathes, blinks, quivers, swallows. The
charged moments excite the audience internally and externally.
Adina Bar-On was born in Kibbutz Kfar Blum, Israel in 1951. She stayed with
her family in the United States at the age of thirteen. She went back
to Israel at 18 and in the next year joined the Bezalel Academy in
Jerusalem majoring in painting. In 1973 she had her first performance
in the Academy. The Academy’s psychologists were asked to watch the
performance in order to give opinion. Bar-On received a warning letter
from the directors of the Academy informing her that she had to go back
to traditional media in order to graduate. On one hand, Bar-On went
back to painting, on the other, she performed in the places outside the
Academy such as gallery, museum, cultural centre and art space. She
even extended it to non-art establishments such as youth club, shopping
arcade and private home. Last year Bar-On toured to Budapest, Japan,
Macau, Hong Kong, Russia and Poland.

Adina Bar-On
is widely recognized to be Israel’s first performance artist,
creating work since the 1970s. Her performances are remarkable for
their sensitivity, emotional depth, and for Bar-On’s
willingness to tackle difficult and controversial subjects. Bar-On lives and works in
Tel-Aviv, dividing her time between teaching (performance and visual
communication) and her art practice, which
includes performance art and video. In the past several years she has toured extensively in
Europe and Asia. This is her first trip to Canada. A book about her work in
English and
Hebrew was published in 2001 with the support of the Herzliya Museum of Art in Israel.
