Studying "virtual worlds" in school

My new grad school program is called the Interactive Telecommunications Program, or ITP. ITP is within the Tisch School of the Arts at NYU. This is actually my second Master's degree. One of my major interests is in studying dance and movement, and technology. This semester I'll be taking a class on Virtual Worlds. I think I should spend some time researching virtual performance, and I'm interested in discovering the similarities and differences of virtual worlds and other studies in Computer-Supported Cooperative Work.

DANSCAMDANSE 2009III International Dance Film Festival25-26-27 november 2009 - Art Cinema OFFoff - Ghent - Belgium.DANSCAMDANSE is an international film festival focusing on the interaction between dance and visual media: the different ways dance is a formal subject of film, or a source of inspiration. The festival aims to be the voice of a continuously growing number of choreographers and visual artists—a focused opportunity for exposing new dancefilms creations and a platform for reflection on these themes.DANSCAMDANSE festival deals with the special relationship between dance and the moving image, between the physical aspect of dance and the pure quality of projected light. This relationship can flourish from both directions—in one way as a presentation of mainly choreographic works recorded/produced for the camera or, on the other hand, as an interpretation of dance, translated into a film.The festival is a chance to join cross borders between dance and film, creating a stage for different ideas and visions to reach one another.This 3th edition focuses on uncompromising, unconformistic Experimental Dancefilmsin a broad perspective (only single screenformat).DANSCAMDANSE is interested in new, original and personal ideas that can arouse interest and exchange. The festival is not a competition but, instead, a meeting for promotion, inspiration and new discoveries.DANSCAMDANSE is an initiative of the MahaWorks Organisation in collaboration with Art Cinema OFFoff and Flanders International Film Festival-Ghent-Belgium.MahaWorksDANSCAMDANSEZandberg 19000 GhentBelgiummore infowebsite: www.danscamdanse.beemail: info@danscamdanse.betel: +32 (0) 9 330.03.72!Deadline September 25th!Please forward the news!
