Dance Engine is an experiment initiated and produced by Cinedans in collaboration with design studio FourceLabs and the International Choreographic Arts Centre (ICK). We're collectively searching for a playful experience that springs from movement; an experience perfectly suited for both experienced and inexperienced dancers.
Date: December 1th 2011
Throughput time: 4 months
Rather than the movement of the body being purely instrumental, as it is in many existing motion centered games, the movement is instead the primary goal of the game. In order to achieve this the movement needs an exploratory character. Players should be able to improvise in their movement.
At present we have made a game installation centered on the ‘Around Ball’ dance concept belonging to ICKAmsterdam. The player will experiment with the creation, conservation and destruction of a circularly volume by improvising movement.
