The TeDance book launch will take place at Culturgest, on the 13th March, at 6:30 p.m. So, if you happen to be in Lisbon by then, please, do not miss this session.
Within the framework of the project TeDance, we have attempted to determine the likely intersections amongst four vertexes -- motion capture, augmented reality, character animation and choreography -- from an experimental and artistic perspective. The reader may now discover a set of texts, signed by scholars and art researchers from Portugal and abroad, adding volume to the original square, creating a cubic form. In fact, the reader will find those four concepts not exactly as univocal vertexes, but as attractors to lineations of unequal intensity. This book is a contribution to a better understanding of the variable geometry of this cubic-like artefact, which permanently discovers new updating. We centralise the body within this mutable form. And this is something that dance - perhaps, more than any other performing art - keeps reminding us.
(Please contact to order copies of the book.)

The Faculdade de Motricidade Humana, TU Lisbon, is pleased to announce the Conference Technologically Expanded Dance which will be held at CULTURGEST from November 22 - 24, 2007.
The following conference topics will be considered:
- Cross modal perception, artificial synesthesia and intermedial relations between artistic languages.
- Motion capture systems and archives of body movements.
- Aesthetic signification of technology.
- Transfers from game structures onto audible, visual or kinetic narratives.
- Corporeality and new technologies.
- Virtual and augmented reality applied to the stage.

CULTURGEST has a small auditorium, 4 rooms and 1 foyer that could host pannels on the above themes, media art installations, new media artworks and pocket performances. Submitters are invited to check the rider of the hostage spaces within the perspective of site-specific*. Eventually submitters should provide their own equipment. Proposals should be submitted online by 29 June 2007.
