E-Space at symposium “Intangible Cultural Heritage and Innovation”

Share

Europeana Space and the Dance pilot in particular was presented by the coordinator Sarah Whatley at this three-day symposium, which discussed the current status of research on recording and visualisation techniques and their application within the field of intangible cultural heritage, while focussing on different expressions of artistic dance.

Different expressions of artistic dance were the main focus: as a volatile art form the preservation of dance – also for future generations – is a tricky, but important question. Thus, looking at the possibilities of its digitalisation and visualisation is a very challenging and fascinating task. Yet, other forms of spatiotemporal movement, dynamics and expressions – as they exist in rituals, liturgies, folklore and other performing arts – were addressed at the event.

While looking at the technical achievements, the symposium also put an emphasis on the applicability of these techniques for artistic processes, forms and languages.
