Columbus-based choreographer Bebe Miller and her dancers present one of their most ambitious projects and the first since the 2001 Bessie Award–winning Verge. Landing/Place employs digital motion capture imagery, computer animation, live music, video projection, and exquisite dancing to explore themes of sensory, spatial and cultural dislocation. Miller, a professor in Ohio State's top-rated Department of Dance, collaborated with ACCAD staff Animation Specialist Vita Berezina-Blackburn to develop the piece's digital imagery which is derived from motion captured data. Miller utilized the resources of the Advanced Computing Center for the Arts and Design (ACCAD) motion capture lab and the expertise of ACCAD staff member Brian Windsor to capture the company's movements. Developed with support from the creative residency program of the Wexner Center for the Arts, as well as from the Advanced Computing Center for Art and Design (ACCAD) and the College of the Arts at The Ohio State University, Landing/Place opens September 30th at the Wexner Center and is touring nationally.
