Media artist, composer and programmer Mark Coniglio is widely considered to be a pioneering force in the exploration of dance and interactive media. Beginning with Troika Ranch, the media intensive dance company he co-founded with Dawn Stoppiello, and later as the creator of the media software Isadora, he has spent nearly three decades enmeshed in the relationship of movement, media, and computing.

Coniglio’s early dance and technology work – where sensory systems, responsive media software and live performers combined to produce an interactive “reflection” of the body – has evolved into an approach where technology actively intervened in the creation, rehearsal and performance of movement. After reflecting on his past work, he will propose future interventions where artificial intelligence will be placed into conflict with human bodily knowledge, to provoke the invention of new movement, unforeseen structures, and compelling relationships between the body, media and the stage.

The lecture is held in English.
