Exploring technology in creative endeavors, Tony-nominated choreographer Marlies Yearby of the hit Broadway musical RENT and fashionista-technology diva Bonnie Sandy introduce DANCEHACKIT™ a new virtual platform they’ve originated to share creativity and showcase fresh ideas.
“It removes the limitations of location by being virtual and globally accessible” says Yearby, “Imagine – dancers in different parts of the world start moving simultaneously to the same music – a DANCEHACKIT.”
A call for dancers is in progress across the globe for all styles to participate in DANCEHACKIT inspiring to bring people together beyond color, culture, body type and geography through technology that educates while inspiring creativity globally.
This style and freedom of expression will test launch as a part of Brooklyn Fashion Film Festival on Nov. 19, 2011 from the mother launch pad at the Kumble Theater at Long Island University, Brooklyn, New York: live and streamed, remixed, and replayed to your screen. A featured vee-jay will interplay with the captured montages by tech sponsor Vyou.com and toss the video mix back out for viewing the dancers in a new way.
The Kumble Theatre at Long Island University in Brooklyn will open its theater so the event can be viewed live and projected.
“We’re also looking at creativity and style with some Pads collaborating with fashion designers in Brooklyn Film and Fashions Festivals. It will be interesting to see the synergy between the design and the dance as well as the conflict and chaos,” said Sandy.
