2009 InterPlay: AnARTomy
Web Publicist: Russel Hendrickson


The human body is a complex system of thought and action where the simplest impulse can generate the most amazing human motion. The subject of AnARTomy is an exploration into our very personal receptacle as a connector through which humans operate, activate and live.
The InterPlay: AnARTomy performance will be held March 27-29, April 3-5, 2009 at the University of Utah Intermountain Network and Scientific Computation Center Auditorium at 155 South 1452 East in Salt Lake City. The times are Friday 3/27 - Saturday 3/28: 7:00 pm MDT and Sunday 3/29: 4:00 pm MDT. The second weekend times are designed for the east coast sites and Cardiff University, Wales Friday 4/03 - Saturday 4/04: 12:00 pm MDT and Sunday 4/05: 9:00 am MDT. To attend as part of the Salt Lake studio audience - tickets are general seating and may be purchased at the door or at our on line Box Office. Students are free with valid ID, 7.00 General, 5.00 Seniors and Another Language Members. Attendance is available at several of the sites listed below, in Second Lifetm, and a live video stream of the digital mix will be available at

Buck; Cardiff University, Wales, United Kingdom - Mike Daley, Ben Spruce.
InterPlay is a multi-faceted event that consists of two or more performances that occur simultaneously in various cities around the world. The performances are concurrently captured, mixed, digitized, encoded and streamed onto the network. The director manipulates each video stream to appear in any of several video playback windows. This creates a work that takes individual stories and weaves them into a multi layered, distributed, cinematic performance.
InterPlay is similar to the process that the brain performs during the formulation of a dream sequence. Images that have been stored through recent experiences simultaneously emerge in pieces and the brain mixes them into a surreal sequence that loosely resembles a story. Video streams, similar to these emerging images, coming from several sites across the country and the world, are then combined into a richly woven audio-visual tapestry.
Another Language has researched this process since 1995, by following the growth of emerging technologies to the present. Through the utilization of Access Grid tm videoconference software and the development of real-time, distributed processes Another Language Performing Arts Company stands in the forefront of this innovation as world leaders in telematic, collaborative performances.
