Performance Arts and Augmented Reality (AR) is a structured introductory workshop on Augmented Reality, tailored for performing arts-makers to acquaint themselves with Photogrammetry and Volumetric Video Capture technologies.

This workshop is an introduction into possibilities, where the overall goal is to facilitate the empowerment of participants to employ technology in their own creative discovery process.

Designed for performance-makers and production designers who work in performance, we welcome a diverse mix of participants across different performing arts fields with a professional practice of their own. Prior in-depth knowledge about new media technologies is not required, however, a basic understanding and appreciation of AR and VR mediums used in film, gaming and performing arts will be necessary to engage with this workshop fully.

In this 3-session online workshop, we aim to:

  • Guide participants to understand how body, space, and time can be captured, digitized, shaped, and shared via digital mediums;
  • Introduce the possibilities of using Photogrammetry and Volumetric Video Capture technology in their works or explorations in Augmented Reality;
  • Enable participants to develop an appreciation and/or a mindset to apply such new media technology to their creative process.
