FIRST ADAPTATION OF A SOCIAL NETWORK INTO LONG FORM PROGRAM
NEW YORK, July 28, 2008 – TenduTV (www.tendu.tv), the first broadband channel focused on dance video, announced today an agreement with online community Dance-Tech (www.dance-tech.net) to adapt the social network into a self-titled monthly, long-form program. Dance-Tech will feature in-depth interviews with leaders, scholars and innovators in the performance art world who are taking advantage of new technologies in creating their work. The Dance-Tech program and related content will be made available through TenduTV’s distribution, syndication and advertising partners beginning in the fall of 2008.
“The technologies enabling both the art and science of movement have entered into an amazing and significant growth phase” said Marc Kirschner, General Manager of TenduTV, “in the last few years, movement and technology have combined to form the Segway, the Nintendo Wii and Oscar Pistorius, the double-amputee sprinter who nearly qualified for the Beijing Olympics. Dance-Tech will showcase a combination of technology and artistry that will educate and amaze. “
“We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to invite more people to participate in our discussion,” said Marlon Barrios Solano, founder of Dance-Tech and host of the Dance-Tech program. “With the larger reach of the TenduTV network, Dance-Tech will be able to share our community’s passion and accomplishments with a much wider audience.”
Dance-Tech will be co-executive produced by Marlon Barrios Solano, Marc Kirschner, and Kevin Harkins. Early featured guests will include choreographer Gideon Obarzanek, of Australia’s Chunky Move, who combines real-time motion tracking, generative animation and lasers to create unique dramatic landscapes, and Amsterdam-based choreographer Emio Greco, whose Capturing Intention research project has revolutionized the field of dance notation and documentation with its findings on computer based gesture analysis.
TenduTV (www.tendu.tv) is a broadband television channel featuring staged and filmed modern and contemporary dance and ballet performances from both established and emerging choreographers. The TenduTV channel will be launching in the Summer of 2008 on select video platforms, including TidalTV (www.tidaltv.com)
Dance-Tech (http://www.dance-tech.net) is a Ning-based social network catering to an international community of artists, scholars, technologists and organizations working within the disciplines of performance, science and new media. Members of Dance-Tech showcase their work, share ideas and opinions, and find collaborators for future works. Dance-Tech was created by former dancer Marlon Barrios Solano, who serves as Social Media Specialist for Dance New Amsterdam and is the Online Festival Coordinator for the Dance Films Association.
