"Dividual Plays Experimental Lab" is an extract from the dance piece Dividual Plays. Dividual Plays was produced as the first research outcome of Reactor for Awareness in Motion (RAM), a research project we have been involved in since 2010. "Dividual Plays Experimental Lab" consists of essential elements of Dividual Plays: virtual environments for dance "scenes," a programming toolkit (RAM Dance Toolkit), and a motion-capture system (MOTIONER). With these systems, the lab allows the visitors to explore and create their own body movements to correspond with the experience of the dancers in Dividual Plays.
