The Documentation and Preservation of Dance
project brings together an interdisciplinary team from the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH) at the University of Maryland, the Advanced Computing Center for the Arts and Design (ACCAD) at Ohio State University, the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, and the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts to host a series of workshops that will establish and document the current state of the art and push forward action on the pressing problem of dance preservation. In this session, a panel of experts on dance and technology will discuss the state of dance documentation and the preservation of choreography. Topics will include the reconstruction of a late choreographer's work, motion capture and animation, brain imaging, and public access vs.
intellectual property rights.
