Join us in exploring different techniques and methods in utilizing video projection and light and incorporating it (eventually) into dance.   Structured with choreographers and creators in mind, Projection + Light Media Lab was created to facilitate a space and time were we can ‘try things out’ in a supportive environment. Many times projection and light are only thought of or able to be facilitated the week of the show in the theatre. We will provide a 2 hour space to use the equipment (and each other as stand in dancing bodies) to explore how to fully incorporate our ideas through technology and its very many possibilities. Before we start each session there will be a 1 hour mini-tutorial about the equipment/software/hardware that will be used in our exploratory 2 hour session. We will provide a projector, cables, a camera (for live video feed), a computer running Isadora (software), some projection surfaces, and the lighting equipment that is currently in Green Street’s studio theatre. There may be opportunity at the last 2 sessions to bring in your dancers to attempt to incorporate these explorations into your work, but it is not mandatory.

Topic schedule will be as follows:

  • M 8/11 – Lighting with Stephen
  • F 8/15 – Projection with Callie
  • M 8/18 – Lighting 2 with Stephen
  • F 8/22 – Projection 2 with Callie

Although this was intended as a series, you may also choose “a la cart” options for individual sessions. The difference between the first and second session of each topic is that one will build on the other. You may signup for a second session only.  Material covered in each session will be available to all registrants regardless of what session they signed up for.

Facilitated by Callie Chapman (choreographer and projection artist) + Stephen Petrilli (lighting designer)
