Hello dance-techers,
Excellent news!
We are launching today our new platform for
Thank to the collaboration of dancedigital from the UK and ArrowRootMedia from NYC, we  are able to launch in its own platform: complete performances and excerpts, selected interviews, documentaries, lectures and  LIVE programs.
Enjoy and share!





We are also relaunching CHOREOGRAPHY or ELSE on more than 30 complete seminal works of contemporary movement artists...on-line!

Choreography or ELSE, is an online series on dance-techTV that will feature complete performances from international choreographers, dance artist or directors that continue to challenge traditional and contextual notions of choreography. They problematize the performance of movement with their on-going experimentation with compositional and aesthetic strategies, dramaturgic approaches, non conventional spaces, appropriating uses of the new technologies, crossing disciplinary boundaries and dwelling on cultural hybridity.



Claudia LaRocco Presents: Interview with Ivana Müller
We are glad to co-present this piece between ClassicalTV and dance-tech.TV in special collaboration with dance journalist Claudia LaRocco.
While We Were Holding it Together by Ivanna Muller is the inaugural piece of the on-line series Choreography or ELSE: Contemporary Experiments on the Performance of Motion.

Hello dance-techers, It’s been a while, and plenty to report. Get ready for an exciting ride!

First and foremost, I am going to be attending “Post Me_New ID” in Dresden (Germany) from 31st October to 2nd November 2008, where I will have the opportunity to present our network in the QuickFire sessions. If you’re going, please get in touch with me, as I would love to meet as many of you as possible. Dance Tech: The Series

The “Dance Tech” series will be premiering next week on TenduTV . The first episode presents highlights and excerpts of interviews with Gideon Obarzanek, Jill Johnson and Rachid Ouramdane. It has been an exciting and educational experience to work with Marc Kirschner from TenduTV and co-Exec producer Kevin Harkins to put together a very dynamic and deep program that reflects the sophistication of our artists/thinkers/researchers. TenduTV will be available on and TidalTV. Dance Tech: The meetup

Many thanks are owed to Dance New Amsterdam for allowing us to use their beautiful theater for the evening and to Jaki Levy form Misnomer Dance Company for co-organizing this event!

I recently returned from Brazil, where I attended the 7th Encuentro Red Sudamericana de Danza, which took place during the International Dance Festival in Recife. This annual event gathers the core members of the South American dance network to evaluate and develop strategies for collaboration among all levels of the cultural production and research of dance. I was honored to share with them my experience with, and we became a model for the launching of their own social networking site. We had very interesting discussions and some of the topics were of a very high level: epistemology of the south, networks and cultural enterprise and amazing beaches! I hope you’ll all join me in welcoming Red Sudamericana de Danza as a partner network! CALL for Projects!! INTERFACING MOTION with Wireless Miditron Fall 2008 with the support of Eroktronix is launching the contest "Interfacing Motion with MidiTron Wireless" to support a young active dance/performance artist in his or her initial explorations on interactive multimedia control for live performance of movement. For each of two consecutive 6-month periods,a selected artist will be given a new MidiTron Wireless to be used as an interface in new project involving the use of physical sensors for gestural control of multimedia during live performance. Back to Post Me_New ID From their site: The forum is planned as a platform for reflection on how we are creatively and socially engaged in digital networks, how we perform our online and offline identities, how we have become plural and variable post human bodies.

News about Golden Nica 2009 Nomination on Digital Communities for In the beginning of March, I received an email from the Digital Communities Committee for the Ars Electronica's Golden Nica 2009 award, letting me know that our community was nominated for the award. This is so exiting and important! Just the fact that we were nominated is an important indicator of the relevance of our know how and that we are doing a good job in sharing knowledge and innovation. I believe that we have a lot of possibilities of winning. Keep rockin'! Using the network for teaching: More a more teachers and instructors are using the network for teaching in their courses, either using the videos to illustrate concepts or surveying the field. Some of them are formally creating groups for their classes or study groups.

Share with us if you are using the network for teaching or educational projects...also how are you collaborating creating new methods or strategies in its use? what are your student responses? Research on Networking Dance Cultures: I am writing this from Dresden. I just started a three months research trip exploring the possibilities of our network to augment the potential for translocal knowledge exchange and study the complexities of open platforms of information sharing across boundaries of countries, cultures, disciplines, technologies and bodies. I will be in Dresden for 10 days sharing with the Forsythe Company while they are in residency performing (I will interview Bill Forsythe and some of his powerhouse creative team). I will also be preparing for a think tank on the future of performance and new media that will take place in Prague during Enter4, an exciting Conference on Art, Science and Technology. Amsterdan, Beirut, Tunisia, Lausanne , Geneva, Annecy and Madrid are in the roadmap.I will be writing and video blogging intensively and let me know if you are around any of this places:We might meet up! This research adventure is made possible in part with the support of Geneva Based Gilles Jobin Company and the Trans Media Akademie Hellerau, Dresden. Their support is helping us to realize this vision of an open forum for free exchange of knowledge for our community. Thank you again! Special thanks to the directors of Dance New Amsterdam, where I work in NYC as a social networking specialist, for creating a sabbatical format that is allowing me to work remotely and to integrate this research on future innovative educational and audience development programs.
