Zoi Dimitriou, greek choreographer based in London will be working on her new piece this April. She will be working on The Chapter House, a new interdisciplinary dance piece with intricate choreography by Zoi Dimitriou and video design by Mark Coniglio.

This new work looks at the act of documentation and of performing. It aims to expose the processes and mechanics of making, and uses digital media to document, re-construct and re-enact a live performance.

In The Chapter House, Zoi Dimitriou looks back at the body of her own work and questions how meaning gets revealed and transformed in an attempt to subject the ‘personal’ to another’s viewpoint.

the Greek State School of Dance, received the Onassis Foundation Scholarship to

Hi everyone,
just to share our joy that we have just premiered a first version of our new work I-CARE-US, a performance for the AR.Drone 2 and a dancer. After two years of hard programming work (we have created a custom-built Performance App for computers in LabView, resolved live video stream issues, interfaced with the drone flight data via OSC etc.) and winning the VIDA 15.0 production incentive award, we would like your feedback!
Here is more information and the trailer of the performance:

Using Augmented Reality, Artistic Research, and Mobile Phones to Explore Practice-based Learning

Posted on 14 March, 2014 by Richard

Living Archives affiliate Daniel Spikol presented a paper at Ideas in Mobile Learning 2014, an event that brought together practitioners, industry players, and researchers to exchange visions of how to use mobile technology to change the way we teach and learn.

The paper Using Augmented Reality, Artistic Research, and Mobile Phones to Explore Practice-based Learning is co-authored by Daniel Spikol, Camilla Ryd, Jacek Smolicki, Susan Kozel, and Jeanette Ginslov. In short, the paper argues that the design of practice-based learning activities can benefit from integrating artistic research, both in the development of these activities and when carrying them out. Spikol’s presentation is embedded below (or here on YouTube). The slides are available here.
