BlackBox launches a 360º video platform to visualize the creative process of the ballet “Quinze Bailarinos e Tempo Incerto” by João Penalva and Rui Lopes Graça

BlackBox project has created a new concept to study creative processes in dance and performance using a 360º camera and animated and interactive annotations.
The results of this research can be viewed in a new platform that will be launched on the 14 of March, 10h00 (am), at São Jorge Cinema, included in the program of the Lisbon Animation Film Festival, Monstra 2018.
BlackBox invites the general public to discover the piece “Quinze Bailarinos e Tempo Incerto” (Fifteen Dancers and Uncertain Time), a work by the visual artist João Penalva and the choreographer Rui Lopes Graça, which was presented by the National Ballet Company (CNB) in 2016. Rui Lopes Graça has been the second case study of the project BlackBox since May 2016. The project has accompanied the entire compositional process of the piece until its premiere.
Fifteen Dancers and Uncertain Time 360º is a multiple viewport platform (for computer, tablet and VR headsets) conceived and realized by Stephan Jürgens (BlackBox Arts & Cognition Project) and Roger Oliveira, a digital media producer from Space Tailor (an interactive media company dedicated to the development of 360º digital environments), produced by Carla Fernandes (principal investigator of the BlackBox Arts & Cognition Project). The platform introduces the viewer to selected compositional strategies and artistic ideas by the authors of the ballet, João Penalva and Rui Lopes Graça, as researched by Stephan Jürgens. In collaboration with the dancers of CNB and Rui Lopes Graça, a rehearsal of two sections of the ballet “Quinze Bailarinos e Tempo Incerto”was filmed for the 360º video environment by Roger Oliveira. Moreover, both films include graphic information, which allow the viewer to understand essential compositional ideas underlying this dance work.
