Description

IDE Fantasy: Telematic Dance for 3 Performers with IMU sensors, SuperCollider and Godot Gaming Engine

IDE Fantasy is short for "Izutsu, or: Daphnis and Echo, a meta-syncretic fantasy". The fantasy combines three seemingly disparate love stories in a meditation on the theme of Everlasting Love. The stories are: The Noh Play /Izutsu/ (Zeami ca 1400 AD), the novel /Daphnis and Chloe/ (Longus, ca 100 AD) and the story of /Echo and Narcissus/ (Ovid). At the well cradle (Izutsu) of a village, an itinerant priest dreams of the ghost of a woman that appears dressed in the clothing of her lost husband, to see herself reflected as her husband on the water at the bottom of the cradle.

This is the first public presentation involving three performers in different cities: Iannis in Stanford plays the itinerant priest who dreams about the story in Izutsu, Tasos in Athens plays Daphnis, and Natali in Corfu plays Echo. We attempt to resynthesise the performance on each of these locations in real time, using SuperCollider for sound and Godot for image, based on data captured by 2 Inertial Measuring Units (IMU sensors) worn by each performer, and transmitted to all locations via OSC. The animation as well as the data capture on raspberry pi zero were programmed by Nikos Charalambidis, undergraduate student at the Department of Audiovisual Arts of the Ionian University.

The technical support in Athens is done by Dr. Vasilis Agiomyrgianakis  and PhD candidate Panos Tsangarakis. Sincere thanks are also due to the dancers Natali Mandila and Tasos Pappas-Petridis, Ms Mary Randou of the Garage21 Performing Arts Centre in Corfu and Dr. Giorgos Petras whose support made this project possible.
