Summary/Abstract: New forms of performance were born in the 20th century because of the active role that computer technology plays in the universe of performance and not only, as it spreads throughout the entire society as a necessity. As mankind has become more and more dependent on computer science, the performing arts as well have begun to use digital technology for original, multimedia, interactive performances. In my choreographic techniques classes I have always tried to adapt the content and the study materials according to the new technological tools, using digital technology related to choreography, which is a physical art by definition, because I noticed that the students thought that digital is more “modern” and more attractive. The interactivity concept, as well as the body technology, leads to a new dramaturgy of dance performance, to new significations of motion and gesture, to a new audience-dancer relationship. The dance performance The Geometry of Echo was such a project involving digital, multimedia, interactive choreography, by which I intended to develop the artistic creativity of my dance students.
