The main aim of our R&D time was to find answers to the question of how to adapt our practice to the stage. That is, how could we create traditional frame by frame animation live, showing the loop in-progress alongside the live animation process.

We developed custom tools for live animation and improvisation, digital and under the camera, manipulated generative visuals in real-time, added MIDI controllers, cue management, automation and algorithmic sound and started working on the production of a live animation performance.
