Training : 14 hours in 2 days
Registrations : Until September 21
Workshop dates : In person on September 23 and 24 in OBORO's Studio 01, from 10 am to 6 pm

Instructor : Armando Menicacci 

Guest Speaker : Nicolas Berzi 


Among live–digital arts programming software, Isadora is the simplest. This training offers an initiation to Isadora visual programming for live control and treatment of all types of media (video, sound, capture and lighting), including all the latest developments for teleperformance. Specifically, we will study the software management interface, its programming logic, the import and treatment of media and the preparation of the global control platform once the programming of the project is completed. 

The workshop is designed for artists and stage technicians (video, sound, light) digital artists and any person interested in reflecting on composition and interpretation processes with digital technologies in scenic arts. At the end of training, participants will have a broad understanding of the possibilities offered by the software and will be able to use the interface in order to start working on their own projects. A complete one-month ISADORA license will be offered to each participant. 


The maximum number of participants is 6.

Cost: $45.00
