SynopsisSenses Places is a mixed reality collective performance and participatory environment that follows an ongoing process towards a kinesthetic/somatics embodied mediat(iz)ed communication. We engage in converging our physical, avatar and video embodiments through live videostreams, webcam, and biometric interfaces at the Second Life's MUVE. This performance will integrate one of 15 episodes of a larger 3 day performance premiere, Parad is0, no hay billetes, from Salud Lopéz (LaboratoriosSLD), in residency at Casa de las Artes de Alanís de la Sierra, Spain. For this performance we will engage with the excretory body system (lungs and skin), on a somatic mediated experience and extrapolating meaning, such as embodied multiplications, continuing to mingle our different hybrid embodiments towards an emerging integrated reality. 
- What subjective and shared inter-subjective kinesthetic/somatic embodiments can we generate towards an integrated reality through an intertwining of physical, avatar, and image, and environment interfacing?- How is this state of expanded awareness in action a form of meditative mediation, opening and noticing multiple communicative channels?
Let's allow our bodies to interact intuitively, attaining for close/intimate/inner/somatic/energetic/kinesthetic connections, bringing into play our senses and subjective trans-cultural backgrounds. Our common concept is the experimentation and reflection upon the very shared interfacing experience and what kind of dance we develop through this mixed reality approach. The experiment is anchored in the sense of embodying and how we adapt to different mediations of self, others and environments :D
SCOREThis score proposes performative situations based on improvisational and integrative Eastern-Western dance approaches. During the performance the participants/performers choose at least 2 situations to engage with and relate with others, change them at will, and are invited to play their own animations or HUDs towards emerging connections from the eclectic/hybrid embodiments. Although there is no fixed sequence, we propose to start in a circle, getting further closer to each other, including touch or a senses of one body, and explode in all directions. Moves and auras related to the energy/excretion :-D
Once we are working with the excretory system, we would like to propose that we try this time to start engaging with :Breathing - specially breathing out/exhaling and add sounds coming out of the movement related to the somatic sensing of release. How about initiating with AOM? Skin - between inner body and external environment. such as sweat, energy/aura, touch self-othersKidneys - relation with fluids system.
Score Situations / HUDs associatedA. Rooting / Grounding - floor poses & moves connecting bodies-environments B. Standing Poses / Empowering - in between earth-sky - Buddha, Yoga & Power poses C. Flying /Orbiting - levitate, like birds flocking and micro-macro quantum-astral elements D. In Between/transitioning- mixing floor, standing, and flying animations.
