Another thematic focus of the festival will be the testing and exploration of new telematic media applications resulting from a continuing mediatisation. This subject will be the context of the European co-operation project European Tele-Plateaus ‚Äď Trans- national Sites of Encounter and Co-Production. The objective of this project is to create virtual sound-image-spaces for the public to walk-in and interact in a sensate-bodily condition. This will be across great distances and within networked virtual environments in real-time.

ETP_body-spaces09 ‚Äď Exploration of Nearness & Distance || experimental performance

ETP_body-spaces09 ‚Äď Exploration of Nearness & Distance is an experimental performance of four dancers with simultaneous
actions in Dresden, Prague, Madrid and Norrköping. The interactive environment is web-linked and divided into four parts. Each
part is bound to explore the relationship between proximity and distance in different ways within net-linked virtual environments.

‚Äď Part I: body-instruments
‚Äď Part II: body-visiting of Madrid
‚Äď Part III: bodies & languages
‚Äď Part IV: re-body-spaces

Together with partners from Madrid, Norrk√∂ping and Prague the project of European Tele-Plateaus ‚Äď Transnational Sites of Encounter and Co-production (ETP) was launched by TMA on the occasion of CYNETart 2008. The networking of virtual environments is based on the long-term conceptual and practical activities that TMA have been pursuing in close co-operation with the systems developer Frieder Wei√ü. The project aims at creating virtual sites of sound and vision for public walk-in. By providing a virtual net-linked environment these sites allow sensory-physical interactions over long distances in real-time. The visitors‚Äô physical activities are linked and embedded in a trans-local virtual environment. This is accomplished by the creation of so-called hyper-locations, i.e. the web-based integration of various locally significant sound and image processes.

A joint venture production of the following partners: CIANT Prague (Czech Republic), reverso Madrid (Spain), BitNet Norrköping (Sweden) and TMA Hellerau (Germany).
