Abstract

This paper describes the process of adapting a dance piece to an interactive installation. To cope with COVID-19 restrictions, the installation runs on a browser, allowing for remote access, and is based on camera tracking of movement. We describe the adaptation of the dramaturgy, with a primary focus on translating the interaction design aspects from the performance to the browser-based installation. We invited five users to test our working prototype, and we report on their feedback. This paper offers insights on how to adapt a dance piece to an interactive browser-based installation. We also highlight the benefits of using machine learning for motion capture in this context. Finally, we identify the potential of using interaction design with sound for embodied perception.
