We’re very excited to be working with Forward Motion Theater next year! Forward Motion Theater is a creative arts organization that produces live events and performances, creates technology and interactive installations for galleries and museums, provides creative services for special events, and helps the arts community with technology services. FMT also presents choreo-works using technology and movement. FMT on celebrates its 10th year as a nonprofit on November 8th! Check out this video of RE:vision on Vimeo!

Six ReVision events took place one night a month between January and June 2010. Each evening featured six to seven collaborations in live-video and performance art, at The Secret Theatre in Long Island City Queens. The series emphasizes live-media interactivity, challenging digital media artists to present work outside of “traditional” exhibitions in film festivals and galleries. Video artists have access to multiple projectors and CRT monitors, and innovative presentations included the use of 3D viewing technology, projections onto the floor, and projections onto the bodies of the performers themselves.

Live-media artists used creative technology tools to trigger cues, alter tempo, and synchronize their performance with other live participants. Many works explored camera-based interactivity where on-stage performers can influence and co-create the visual presentation in real time. Participating artists received free rehearsal space to develop new work at FMT’s performance lab, and access to FMT’s blue screen/black box video studio and post-production facilities. FMT provides full technical and promotional support for the event and documents the live collaborations in photo and video. Documentation, including full-length video of the collaborations is maintained online.

Save the date! The Tank presents a run with Forward Motion Theater on January 14th, 2011.
