Project Trans(m)it: Creating Dance Collaboratively via Technology--A Best Practices Overview
Weber, Rebecca; Mizanty, Megan; Allen, Lora
Research in Dance Education, v18 n2 p116-134 2017
Project Trans(m)it is a collaborative research project among a cohort of intercontinental artists exploring dance creation via technological platforms. This paper seeks to disseminate our practice-led research findings on "best practices" for transferring embodied information via technology, as well as posit how technology will shape and impact global dance education into the twenty-first century. Over the past two years, Project Trans(m)it has delved into the creation, production, and transference of movement between vast geological spaces in the production of a shared work, "Phase Two." Rehearsing weekly, the group rotated between various technological platforms, including but not limited to: Facebook Messenger, Gmail, Skype, Google Hangouts, Snapchat, and Rabbit. This collaborative interdisciplinary practice and knowledge exchange is a novel one stemming from the "global dance community," which is now an attainable and real phenomenon, shaped by the technologies allowing it to occur.
