Tuesday Morning Inspiration: Dancing with Digital Puppetry

Hakanaï is one of the more unconventional examples of a digital puppetry performance I’ve discovered (although, is there anything truly “conventional” about any form of digital puppetry?). It was created by the French Company Adrien M / Claire B, who describe it as a “haiku dance performance taking place in a cube of moving images projected live by a digital performer”.

The performance involves a dancer performing live, whose movements are tracked in real-time and used as the basis for an interactive, digitally animated environment that is projected around them:
