Initiated by YCAM InterLab, Yoko Ando, a leading dancer from The Forsythe Company, and a group of software engineers in 2010. Since then, we have been developing the "Reactor for Awareness in Motion (RAM)" and this presentation is the result of our project that explores the possibilities of body expression through technology in the form of dance performance. RAM defines dance as something produced by the interaction between the dancer and environment rather than a predetermined choreography. Dancers take in surrounding information including other dancers' movement and react to it according to certain rules they create.
For more information, check RAM project website.
Reactor for Awareness in Moton (RAM)
As part of our research, we developed a system that captures the movement of dancers in real time and interfaces the information to a virtual environment which gives feedback to the dancers. With programming and capabilities design this virtual environment, the system becomes a tool for exploring the possibility of dance.
Paired with the feedback system, this piece accompanies a number of small laboratories on stage in which various objects are placed. They move and shift in accordance with the movement of the dancers. These changes are converted into sound and light and feedback to the stage atmosphere and the dancers who send another signal to the labs. It is a huge "connection machine" involving the dancers, stage and the laboratories.
