Abstract

We present a pilot study investigating the use of mobile technology to augment live performance dance. An augmented performance was created and viewed through an tablet device then analysed from a technical and audience standpoint. Low complexity augmentations were found to be very effective, however the device placed restrictions on higher complexity augmentations, the performance length and the stage/audience spatial arrangements. A low-number audience test indicated that augmentation of live performance was a credible concept, though there are some clear challenges to be overcome specifically around speed of technology and weight of device.
