Tuesday evening performance - DUET for EYES II: Moving with the Sprites

2000 in the Performance and Cultural Industries building

SMARTlab's Inter-FACES project aims to give a human face to new technologies, and to empower creative people of all levels of physical ability to express themselves freely. As part of this long term project, the team have engaged for the past 2 years in a series of workshops and performance showcases to demonstrate the power of specific tools to make a real difference to the lives of real people. Their work has been shown in London, Dublin, Prague, Singapore, Ohio and L.A., and it came to Leeds for the first time with this performance.

Katie Gilligan and James Brosnan led a 'Duet for Eyes' with Bobby Byrne and the company. The duet demonstrated how creative spirits with very limited physical movement can lead and inspire movement in others, using an eye-gaze technology tool customised by the team.
