WhoLoDancE European Research and Education Project (H2020 program)

The WPW (WhoLoDancE Performative Workshop) aims at offering interested audiences an « experiential journey » whereby they discover and/or deepen their knowledge of 4 different dance genres and participate directly in the various ways innovative digital technologies, developed within the EU funded WhoLoDancE research and education project, are integrated in new pedagogical processes for teaching, learning and creating dance movements.

Amongst these technologies: high precision motion capture, algorithmic treatment of data, annotation of movement principles and qualities, segmentation, machine learning and similarity search, blending engine, sonification, movement sketching, etc.

Some comments on the annotation tool for segmentation:

“Segmenting dance movement is not an easy process. The annotation tool was easy to use and the design of interface made the process quite intuitive. Even when a sequence was made of a large number of segments I was still able to segment it properly. In addition, the possibility of saving a draft before hand allowed me to go back to it, make corrections and save a proper version. I must say that going through this process of segmentation can be an important aspect in dance composition and the tool itself can help to push the boundaries of movement memorization and possibly analytical improvement of a given choreography.”
