Deep Listening In Motion

Participatory show

& interactive installation 


Presented by Brooklyn Motion Capture Dance Ensemble

Join the Brooklyn Motion Capture Dance Ensemble for an exploration into an embodied playground filled with motion capture instruments listening and reacting to your presence!


You will have a chance to create along-side members of the ensemble as we explore an interactive installation created by our extraordinary creative team that will turn your motions into sounds. Drawing on technologies from the artificially intelligent, to the complex, to the mundane, we will investigate together new layers of the body's relationship to sound creation.


This will be an interactive space. Please wear comfortable clothing and shoes. While active participation will not be required of attendees, we highly encourage you to please come prepared to move!

Featuring the collaborative efforts of:
Erin Landers - Movement Director
Sophie Delphis - Dancer
Mary Mark - Dancer, Creative Coder
