Supporting artistic collaboration

Agile Recorder is a capture tool to support artistic collaboration. Video footage captured can be clipped, tagged, annotated and shared, all on the fly. Creators can give clear and direct notes, supported by video, that are automatically compiled into a searchable database.

Agile Recorder has been used in rehearsal documentation and as a creative tool to enable new dramaturgies. It was trialled in the development of Nat Cursio’s dance work The Loop, in which dance workshops with children generated choreography for a new dance work. Footage captured through Agile Recorder was clipped and tagged to build a dance vocabulary in video.

Among the diverse applications for this software platform is supporting the creation of digital iterations of live performance works by enabling digital artists coming on board to follow the path of creative decision-making.

Agile Recorder is being developed by Melbourne-based design and development studio, PDA.

Extending the aesthetic intentions of a live work into the digital domain

Digiworks are digital iterations of live performances. They extend the aesthetic intentions of  live performance into the digital domain, and enable new audiences to access works beyond their original showing.

Chamber Made describes a Digiwork as:

a stand-alone artwork that aligns with the themes and content of the original performance, but can be viewed, consumed and understood independently of the original performance. Digiworks may be presented in spaces or delivered via platforms outside of traditional performance spaces. Chamber Made may present a Digiwork in a range of ways, including public screenings, film or projection festivals, installations, open access exploratory labs, online or via other broadcast means such as radio or podcasts.

Digiwork versions of four Chamber Made productions were created in 2016: Another Other, Turbulence, Permission to Speak and Captives of the City, and creative development has commenced on a fifth work, Between 8 and 9.
