i-MAP (Integration of Media Artand Performance)
On April 29th, 2005, European Commission Directorate-General for Education and Culture had approved i-MAP as a funded, one-year (annual) project under the auspices of Culture 2000 Framework Program. The project began on September 1st, 2005 and will culminate in a distributed dance/theatre performance, See You in Walhalla, on September 14th, 2006 in Amsterdam, Athens, and Sofia.
i-MAP is a one-year interdisciplinary collaborative project implemented through a trans-European network of three participating media art organizations, dedicated to fostering new and innovative works of art through effective integration of interactive technologies and live performance practices.
A streaming, telekinetic performance event is proposed as the closing phase of the project. Through collaborative inter-media creation process, developed simultaneously by four teams of artists in co-organizing institutions (media artists, directors and choreographers, programmers and software developers, as well as performers of various mediums), a fully developed dramaturgical structure will be created in order to thoughtfully integrate elements of interactive media and new technologies with live performance practices.
