in collaboration with  

6th International Dance Festival 
of Î?alamata
 
 
"Dance 
is the ideal go-between for electronic and real bodies''  Merce 
Cunningham
 
 
In the interesting times we 
live in, dance and image, cinema, video and perfomance art, material and 
virtual, actual and outer, have approached eachother more than ever 
suggesting the sprung of new complementary and autonomous art forms. 
This organic relation between dance, motion and technology, called either 
interactive dance, telecast dance, multimedia dance or digital dance, sets out a 
new arena for cross-artform experimentation with no anticipated boundaries and 
directives.
 
In an attempt to exlpore the 
field of live perfomance interfaced with digital technologies, KalamataÎ?s Dance 
Festival and Festival "e-phos" co-organize the special program on  
body, motion and technology 
"TRANSDANCE". Through lectures, 
discussions, debates and a studio workshop "TRANSDANCE" aims 
to 
launch an organic 
dialogue on concepts such as live and virtual 
synthesis, among researchers of digital dance, designers of virtual 
architecture, media theorists, and transmedia artists.
