Beuk Beat Ballet @ My First Festival 2016

 

My first festival, a one day festival with focus on a very young audience (2-12), asked me to try out an interactive installation for them. I build a first prototype called beuk, beat, ballet (Bash, Beat, Ballet). The kids could hit on two big floor toms. On each hit a stick man animation would progress one frame giving the children an interactive way to create their own dancing animation.

 

I am currently working on a more sophisticated version of this installation with images of real dancers.
