Brooklyn Ballet Performs with Interactive Costumes

Oh, this is really cool. Brooklyn Ballet is performing with interactive costumes, which use motion sensors to simulate snowfall while they dance. What a creative idea!

They’re trying to raise funding on Kickstarter so they can perform this way throughout 2014. Watch the video above for more information, and follow the link if you want to contribute to this artistic project.

In a true wonderland of possibilities, Lynn, Avram and Nick have worked together to dream and design a techno tutu, a motion sensor skirt that mimics the pattern of falling snow with LED lights as each performer dances through the scene. Wintry projections will follow suit, using the dancers’ patterns on stage as a trigger for producing a snowy effect on the theater cyc.
