Playing with Light 


Interactive Projection and the Performer/Operator


This session will concentrate on work from current research in the School of Performance & Cultural Industries at University of Leeds, UK, including the AHRC-funded Projecting Performance Project.

It will be illustrated by video examples of work using projected light including the interactive Dancing in the Streets light installation in York City Centre in 2005.
The session will investigate issues associated with the use of projected light as a creative scenographic tool and the role of the technical performer/operator in the making of such work.
