Experience a new dance work (evocation) by Sarah Neville in Augmented Reality

Sarah and her collaborators (Visual Artist Alex Degaris, Composer Matthew Thomas, and Dancer Sue Hawksley) are seeking volunteers +18 years to assist with the creative development of a new dance for augmented reality work. This new work – evocation – is experienced on an android tablet by participants moving around a room collecting parts of the dance. The trial of the dance work, unstructured interview and short survey will take no more than 30 minutes. Trials take place at MOD. in the Open Lab.

If you would like to assist this research into new forms of participatory practice in contemporary dance, please book online below or contact Sarah directly.

Evocation was developed in partnership with the creative Computing Studio, UniSA and Dance Hub SA and supported by Arts SA Department of the Premier and Cabinet.
