Abstract

Dance is increasingly a site of research for experts within the discipline and beyond. With the development of digital technologies, artists and researchers are exploring ways to develop new dance events, to engage with audiences and in doing so, to shed more light on the art form itself whilst expanding its boundaries and limitations. Building on these developments the paper shares problems and challenges faced when motion capture technology tries to capture dance movement which emerges through somatic dance movement practices, particularly, an established practice, Skinner Releasing Technique (SRT).
