I'm eager to hear how this conference went, especially what people had to ask and say during the Q&A/Roundtable.

I will write a great deal more tomorrow, but I wanted to put forth some of the ideas that were raised during the first day of the conference. I have not had time to organize these impressions in any conceptual framework, but perhaps we we can work together in the days to come to build a working model for the themes that crop up.

Some questions:

1. How can collaborations between other disciplines inform the collaborative relationship between dance and technology (i.e. how did neuroscience and education theory develop their relationship)?
2. How do we characterize the "post-medium" age we find ourselves in (intermedia, hyrbrid, etc)?
3. What is movement to the computer? How does it read this input and how do we program it to interpret and reframe that input (creating calculated understanding)?
4. How will the interaction of movement and computer-modulated theatrical environment reconfigure dance training?

These questions come of out of Johannes Birringer's keynote address, and I am curious to see if some answers were explored in the evening's performances/Q&A. I look forward to hearing thoughts from those that were there this evening, as well as anyone who would like to weigh in.
