Dear Friends,

Happy New Year!

We hope that you had a joyous and restful holiday season and are enjoying the start of 2011.

As Dance Box Theater prepares for our upcoming Affectations residency and performance engagements, we have been in ongoing trans-pacific dialogue via Skype with composer James Harkins, (who is currently teaching in China) to install SuperCollider onto our new Mac system. Our aim is for James' music score to be truly interactive and movement responsive.

Our other collaborator, Lorne Covington has been working with the new Kinect camera (you may have heard of these as tools for "controller free gaming") to see how we can hone in on the visual interaction as well. Lorne and his lovely daughter Evan will be joining us in Mount Rainier this weekend…

We are very excited to be in the studio with technology again! As Ilana returns home from India this week, we'll be getting ready for our Open Studio on Sunday...

But who knows what will happen? Our experience has shown us that when working with such new technology, we have to be prepared for just about ANY outcome! :)

Will the SuperCollider environment crash?

Will the Kinect camera really offer more precise interaction?
