Isadora is as limitless as the user's imagination. Over 250 basic building blocks can be linked in a nearly infinite number of ways, allowing users to create and manipulate stunning visuals, sonic environments, and media-intensive theatrical experiences. Whether it's a simple sequence to present video clips in a play, or a rich, textured interactive performance that responds in real-time to a performer's action, Isadora has it covered.
Both the Intro course and the Master Class will be taught by Mark Coniglio, creator of the Isadora software. The curriculum will be specifically tailored to the group of students in the room and their respective skill level.
Created by composer and media-artist, Mark Coniglio, Isadora was initially developed to realize the performances of Troika Ranch, the pioneering media intensive dance company he co-founded with fellow CalArts graduate Dawn Stoppiello. Isadora reflects over 20 years of practical experience with real-time live performance and media interactivity.
