Biscoe Bitterova Project

BBP, which brings together the creative talents of Jana (choreographer, dance artist, improviser and creative movement facilitator) and StudioBiscoe (as visual artist, producer, designer and engineer), are developing new performance and choreographic practice employing advances in digital sensing and projection technology. We are currently investigating an approach to communication between visual artists and dance artists in an improvised live performance context.

Here – Not Here – Where? (London Manchester Falmouth)

An exploration of three remotely connected sites, explored through the medium of dance and found sounds rooted in their locality, which asks the question what is here, what is not here, and if not here, where ? In this new work Studio Biscoe continues an exploration of new narratives for network performance: employing (primarily) open source streaming and projection mapping technologies; stepping away from fixed screen based visualisation; and endeavouring to investigate and reveal site specificity in a telepresence context.

The premiere performance of “Here : Not Here : Where?” was at the Royal College of Music on 4th May as part of the Network Performing Arts Production Workshop 2015 (NPAPW) organised by GÉANT, Royal College of Music, Jisc, and Internet2,
