Welcome to IDE-Fantasy

Exploring the redefinition
of distance in time, space, and culture

 

Project's Summary

The IDE Fantasy project creates a collaboration framework between japanese and greek artists in order to develop new ways to interconnect communities across countries through dance and music performance enhanced with open-source digital technologies and the internet.  The project creates a performance that uses technologies such has wearable sensors.  It puts together a team consisting of technology specialists, musicians and dancers to creating a performance that bridges geographical and cultural boundaries between Japan and Greece. The performance integrates themes from classical theater, poetry and literature of Japan and Europe (Izutsu, Daphnis and Chloe, Echo and Narcissus). Our goal is to present this work through workshops, and work-in-progress performances and to perform the resulting piece at the Elevsis23 ECoC festival 2023 and in subsequent events in Japan and elsewhere in 2024 and beyond. The long term goals of the project are to develop new forms of performance and artistic expressions with the use of cutting edge technologies, and to further cultural exchange and cooperation in artistic creation across cultures between Japan, Greece, and other countries.
The project has 2 stages: On May 2022 an open workshop will be held in Eleusis for the development of the works, inclusion of the local community and an open rehearsal. On Spring 2023 the piece will be performance in Eleusis as part of the Elevsis23 activities program.
