Crossing Borders - 18 October: Nic Sandiland

Independent Dance presents a series of talks with artists and academics whose particular practice has led them beyond narrow disciplinary boundaries.

‘’Composite choreography" and "modulation of movement"
Nic will look at the inter-relationship between live movement and prerecorded movement as a fundamental aspect of his practice over the past 10 years and hope to show that through various digital interfaces (motion tracking – ultrasound, infra red and now hacked Kinect sensors) one can achieve an intimate movement-based relationship between pedestrian movement in everyday environments (members of the public in high streets, town squares etc.) and dancer/performers in in a cinematic environment.

Short Biography
Nic Sandiland works between the areas of installation, performance and film. He originally trained as an electronics engineer before studying dance and performance in the late 80s.
He has made and presented at theatres, art galleries, and unusual venues internationally and his film work is regularly broadcast on UK TV.
Nic has been commissioned by organisations such as Royal Festival Hall, Barbican Arts Centre, Sadler's Wells, and Artsdepot. He is a regular collaborator with choreographers Yael Flexer and Rosemary Lee and has worked as an interactive technology designer with companies such as Station House Opera.
