    Active Space: Embodied Media in Performance



    The Active Space is an interactive physical environment designed for dance, theatre and music performance. It engages its inhabitants in a dialog of mutual influence involving movement, visuals and sound. A dynamic and flexible interactive performance system integrates video-based motion tracking, motion capture, real-time audio/video processing, high bandwidth networking, and multi-screen real-time computer graphics. The system continually senses, measures and responds to human movement, enabling dancers and participants to interact with responsive behaviors and “play the space” as an instrument.
