Abstract

This article charts the design, development and build of an interactive performance piece created specifically for use in a club context. At the time of writing it remains work in progress but our aim here is to articulate our creative and research goals and unpack some of the issues surrounding creating hybridized work. The piece takes a traditional set of poi that clubbers often dance with in trance and techno clubs and attempts to augment them with sensor technology in order to allow the shapes, patterns and movements made by the participant to become visualized elsewhere in the club space. Choreographic motifs drawn from the participants' motion in space with the poi add a further layer to the performance, which seeks to set up physical conversations between the dancer, the space, the technology and the club context itself.
