The entire perfomance was a collaborative effort between multiple classes at UT Austin, Concert Lighting, Visual Programming, and Choreography. The piece I was a part of was exploring the explosive and natural movement of the earth. This was exemplified by the raining snow, breathing life into the earth and then an explosion of color and movement similar to the Holi Color Festival celebration. Utilizing TouchDesigner, I was able to have kinect tracking to have snow stick to the performers while also having an interface to enable the interaction between the dance and the color explosions in real time.
