Intermedia Motion Tracking in AR/VR – On Immersive Storytelling and Choreographic Patterns


According to the KAMC Submission Stream "Performing Arts Practices: Theater, Dance, Music", we would like to contribute details on our current research project IML - "Immersive Media Lab" ( The project was funded by FFG COIN "Aufbau" and started in 2018 at the St. Pölten University of Applied Sciences under the leadership of Dr Franziska Bruckner. IML explores the potential of storytelling in immersive media settings. The project consists of five use cases that extend to the sectors Media Art, Creative Industries, Audio Industries, Industry 4.0 and Digital Healthcare. Each use case developed a specific notion of storytelling in the respective context and specific aspects of interactivity. In our KAMC presentation, we intend to focus on the use case IMTA – “Intermedia Motion Tracking in AR/VR”. IMTA is set in an artistic virtual environment, and the narration is about the interaction of body, space and music. A dancer is placed inside a virtual space and uses her avatar to interact with space in order to perform the story in an experimental media installation. The relationship between body and space in general as well as body position, elasticity, speed and rhythm in relation to the whole body in space is archived as a choreographic substrate in the form of a digital action track and transferred into artistic-experimental, immersive storytelling scenarios. Our presentation will give an overview of the delimitation to traditional storytelling methods and the development of new narrative concepts. A visual abstract for IMTA is displayed at
