Visualizing (the Derra de Moroda) Dance Archives

Overview

Visualizing Dance Archives is a research and development project aimed at creating a 3D animation software for dance and choreography.

The goal of this project is to develop a new unique software, which provides the possibility to access historic static sources and to translate their referentiality into visuality, thus revealing its motoric and kinetic aspects. The new computer application will aid research in reconstructing dance by creating animated movement sequences. It will allow to transfer movement content from a variety of sources into a visual, three-dimensional representation. The researcher will be given a great amount of flexibility, offering a wide range of possibilities and choices to connect visualized body postures to movement phrases.

 

Derra de Moroda Dance Archives

Friderica1SmallDance archives provide a wide-ranging memory of the dance, dance studies attempt to access this memory – especially at Salzburg University where the academic and creative interaction of dance studies and the Derra de Moroda Dance Archives is unique in the dance world. The particular Salzburg profile of a dance center aims to serve scholars and practitioners likewise, to bridge the traditional gaps of theory and practice, of history and presence, by providing verbal, visual and kinetic dance materials.

Key Features and Examples

PortdebrasWith the help of animated examples, some key features of the movement engine will be demonstrated. The proper application of dance related movement analysis to animation simplifies the creation of animation and improves the quality of the animated output. Furthermore, the gained flexibility and efficiency contribute to new analytical approaches.

Aims

OpfermannSmallThe project aims at creating a new way of using historical material in dance studies and practise. It will systematize the discourses on re-construction and provide the missing, but more than necessary foundation for further physical research of performative practises.
