This cross-media workshop is directed by Johannes Birringer (Live Art-Performance) and Michele Danjoux (Fashion)


Objective: the creation of an intermedia performance linking emergent fashion design, soft technologies and engineering, visual movement and sonic design through the interaction of dancer and garment. A garment or accessories prototype is under development, which will use sensor technology to act on lighting in the environment

The "emergent dress" project development consolidates our online collaborative partnership with the Department of Dance, Ariziona State University
