Synchronous Objects is very interesting framework for visualizing choreographic structures from dance into virtual objects.

A detailed scientific approach to the art of dance emphasizing the benefits of data visualization in the understanding of the fundamental form of human expression.

Synchronous Objects is an unique project developed by the choreographer William Forsythe and Ohio State University””””””””s Advanced Computing Center for the Arts and Design (ACCAD) and the Department of Dance. Their goal was to create a visualization tools based on a very large set of data for understanding and analyzing choreographies. The quantification through the collection of data and the transformation into a series of virtual objects –  synchronous objects – to explore choreographic structures and  reveal their patterns. As the authors explain: “Our goal in creating these objects is to engage a broad public, explore cross-disciplinary research, and spur creative discovery for specialists and non-specialists alike.”


A research project for developing tools for dance creation and education. This amazing project started in 2011 in Yamaguchi Center for Arts and Media (YCAM) where professionals in dance and technology shared their knowledge.

Now there is a open source Toolkit available to download: RAMDanceToolkit
