Dance and 3D technology

Kaydara announced that famous ballet troupe La La La Human Steps integrated their technology into Amelia, its latest ballet production.

Several years ago, famous choreographer Merce Cunningham usedUnreal Pictures’ Character Studio and LifeForms in some of his dance pieces.

It’s interesting to read about this integration of dance and 3D technology from the point of view of the dance world.

Update: Leslie Bishko, computer animator, Certified Laban Movement Analyst, and associate professor of animation at the Emily Carr Institute of Art + Design, together with Jana Wilcoxen, held a tutorial at GDC this year called “Making Characters Move: Expressive Character Acting Through Laban Movement Analysis”. So while other people are applying computer animation to dance, LMA, which came out of dance, is now being applied to computer animation.
