The SenseStage workshop is meant to bring together people from different disciplines (dance, theatre, sound, video, light) and cooperate in a collaborative environment with interactive technologies.

During the workshop projects will be created that involve real time data gathered from sensors on the body and in the room, in a performance installation context. The projects created by the diļ¬€erent work groups should be open for merging or combining with the projects from other work groups. The outcome of the workshop will be one or more short interactive performance sequences.
