RICHES case study on virtual performances investigates how, using audiovisual and future internet technologies, dance and performance artists can interact with digital technologies to create new artefacts and events, develop new skills which can coexist and complement traditional skills, how cultural expressions from the past can be reinvigorated and renewed with the benefit of leading edge digital technology, and how both artefacts and skills can be transmitted to society.

Dance and performance-based artists have the opportunity to use digital media tools made available by the i2CAT ’s Audiovisual Unit. New insights are being developed about performance within virtual environments.

Finally, through this multidisciplinary collaboration between engineers and artists, the task explores the preservation and transmission of performance-based CH: how to record, store and assure future access to it.
