Coding and Choreography: Performances by Simcoe Contemporary Dancers
MacLaren Art Centre | The Carnegie Room
2:30 to 3:30 pm | Admission free

How can movements of the body be translated for computers to understand? Simcoe Contemporary Dancers presents a demonstration and interactive workshop on the connections between choreography and coding. Working with you, the audience, they will identify patterns and rules in Sarah Lochhead's piece Dactyl and build a chance-based dance for audiences and the artists to bring to life. The event will include a presentation by the Barrie chapter of Ladies Learning Code on programs and opportunities to continue to explore computer science and code.
