Português
Nesta última performance participativa de realidade mista no contexto do InterACT! com a CILxJam, vamos ter uma última oportunidade experimentarmos e improvisarmos as interfaces de forma corporealizada a través do movimento dos entres os corpos físicos, imagens e avatares numa interacção de grupo. Começaremos por receber os participantes guiando-os na corporealização das interfaces: Livestream, Webcam and Nitendo’s Wii mote. Introduzindo os participantes com a relação com o seu corpos físicos e imagens através do Livestream e com avatars através da Webcam e da Wii mote, de modo a que possam po-las a funcionar na hora.
Seguidamente prosseguiremos para a jam performance participative propriamente dita numa perspectiva de Underscore, improvisando a conexão consciente com as muliplas possibilidades perceptivas deixando-as guiar as acções.

English
In this last participatory performance we will have the last chance to learn how to interact through your movement with your and other avatars. We will start by welcoming the physical and virtual participants, leading them to embodied interaction with the 3 types o interfaces: Livestream, Webcam and Nitendo’s Wii mote. Introducing them to the relation with their image through the livestream broadcast, and with the avatar through the webcam and wii mote.
Next we will improvise focusing on the grounding of the interaction with ourselves and others in the physical and virtual space, as physical, image or/and avatar bodies, becoming aware of the multiple perceptions shifting and progressing leading our connected actions/choices. Movement and contact/connection (physical and virtual) will start slow for allowing the awareness of sensing the micro events and interactions, multiple channels of local and remote communication.

Sobre Senses Places
Português
Senses Places/Lugares Sentidos é um ambiente participativo e de performance em realidade mista. Uma colaboração em dança-tecnologia gerando interfaces multimodais para o corpo inteiro canalizada para uma abordagem de dança somática transcultural. Senses Places stressa a consciência e integração perceptiva simultânea local-remota, em que os participantes e ambientes se encontram e envolvem cinestéticamente/sinestéticamente.

Que realidades corporealizadas e trocas culturais específicas emergem neste envolvimento multi-participativo? Ligados entre si e a avatars através das interfaces sugeridas: Livestream, webcam, Wii mote e, brevemente o Kinect, tudo depende da atitude dos participantes na experiência interactiva com os seus corpos físicos, mediações vídeo, animações dos avatars, e/ou alterações ambientais.

About Senses Places
English
Senses Places is a playful mixed reality performance environment for audience participation. An ongoing dance-technology collaboration generating whole body multimodal interfacings keen to a somatic cross-cultural approach; Senses Places stresses the awareness and integration of simultaneous perceptive, local-remote connections, where participants and environments meet and engage kinesthetic/synesthetically.

What emerging embodied realities and cultural specific exchanges will surface by the multi-participant varied involvement? Linked to avatars through the suggested interfaces: Livestream, webcam, Wiimote©, and soon Kinect©, it all depends on the participants’ attitude throughout the interactive experience through their own and each others’ physical bodies, video mediations, avatar moves, and/or environmental changes.
