Anthropod by Essexdance

Anthropod is one of the new collaborative investigations into choreographic form in a virtual/physical space, undertaken by dancers at Essexdance, Chelmsford, UK. Using ReActor motion capture and other digital technologies, Essexdance runs a programme of innovative artistic and educational events.

Essexdance is the regional dance development agency for Essex. Its mission is 'to act as a focus for innovation and excellence for dance development in the County and beyond. It works in professional and educational/community contexts to deliver a strategic range of dance events: from commissions, festivals and tours to professional training events, educational and community projects and publications.'

Commissioned by dance.tech and MESH, Anthropod experiments with a set design, lighting, electronic sound and the projected image, and creates an intense dramatic environment influencing an arcane movement hybrid.

Project dates: Ongoing.

Resource status: The project's website is under development.

Contributors: Mick McNicholas and Darren Johnston.

The Essexdance website offers information and visual material relating to workshops, performances and other activities. The DanceTech website focuses on dance and digital technology.
