APPLICATION PROCESS
Include one paragraph explaining why you are interested in attending the workshop and one paragraph describing the kind of work that you make. Briefly tell us about your level of expertise with computers. Please include your name, address, telephone number and email address.
Applicants must have a basic understanding of using a computer, i.e., opening and saving files, copying and pasting information, basic navigational skills, etc. Applicants must also have gone through the Isadora® Tutorials 1-6 before the workshop begins.

 Send applications to James@3ld.org with ISADORA® WORKSHOP in the subject line.
A Note About the Selection Process: Please know that, beyond your application information, an important factor in choosing the participants is how the group fits together as a whole. When the skills of those participating vary too widely, it means that someone ends up either bored or overwhelmed. So please understand that if you are not chosen it is not a reflection on your abilities or your skills as an artist. Participants will be chosen with a median skill level in mind and the limited number of seats available.
REQUIRED EQUIPMENT
Computers: We require that you bring your own Mac or PC laptop.
Macintosh Requirements: Intel based computer with a bus speed of 2.0 Ghz and 2.0 GB of RAM; Mac OS X 10.4.0 or greater; latest version of Apple’s QuickTime. (G4/G5 computers will work, but they do not perform nearly as well as the Intel machines.)
Windows Requirements: Intel based computer with a bus speed of 1.8 Ghz and 2.0 GB of RAM; Windows 7, Vista or XP; latest version of Apple’s QuickTime.
Video Camera: Some means of capturing live video is required.
The best option is a Digital Video Camera: Video (DV) camera with a FireWire output. (Make sure you have the required cable to connect it to your computer.)
A second option is to purchase a composite video-to-USB adapter like the Daystar Technology XLR8 Interview (Mac) or the Pinnacle Dazzle DVC-100 (Windows).
A third option is to use a web cam, either an external USB model or the one that is built-in to your laptop; this latter option offers the least flexibility however.
Microphone: For those whose computers do not have an integrated internal microphone, an external microphone compatible with the microphone input of your computer is also recommended.
OPTIONAL EQUIPMENT
Sensory Systems: Users may also bring MIDI input devices or other sensory systems if they have prior skill in connecting and using those systems with their computer. Isadora can receive input from MIDI and Serial devices as well as software that supports the Open Sound Control (OSC) protocol.
ENCOURAGED DIVERSITY
3LD especially encourages artists and arts enthusiasts from diverse backgrounds to apply to the workshop. We are interested in facilitating the exchange of ideas amongst populations traditionally underserved within the interactive technology community. All races and ethnicities, and personal abilities are welcome as are performers and non-performers. Artists, arts administrators, producers, designers and curious individuals in general that meet the basic requirements for application and complete the online six-part tutorial are welcome here.

3LD Salon Series
INTERACTIVITY
Curated by James Scruggs

This salon is brought to you by 3LD Art & Technology Center in association with Future Action Science TheaterTuesday, February 4, 20148:00-10:00 pm@ 3LD Art & Technology Center80 Greenwich StreetFREE ADMISSIONRefreshments will be providedRSVP to salon@3ld.org.
The Interactivity Salon brings together 7 designers, from all different backgrounds, with the goal of expanding the conception of how reactive technologies can be used theatrically to tell a story. How much agency can interactive storytelling give to the audience? How aware of their involvement should they be? What is the relationship between interactivity and immersion? This salon is brought to you by 3LD Art & Technology Center in association with Future Action Science Theater (F.A.S.T), a group of theater makers who are interested in adapting emerging technologies to the theater. F.A.S.T. has been meeting and working with this group of artists over the past few months to discover new interpretations of the third part of their most recent work, Love Machine. Love Machine is a story in 3 parts, reflecting the exponential evolution between humans and their machines. The third part follows one character as he uploads himself into a digital universe and is forced to navigate his new existence. In previous incarnations, the main character was puppeteered by a responsive ball of digital light moving in a three-dimensional environment on a projection surface. For this salon, the talented and innovative group of designers have re-imagined the story as a fully immersive, reactionary environment, thrusting the audience from a passive observer into an active participant within the digital world. PARTICIPATING DESIGNERS:Daniel BelquerMike DonagheyIvaylo GetovGreg St. PierreIzzi RamkissoonDavid TennentRobert Wuss Directed by Andrew ScovilleProduced & Managed by Karina MartinsLighting Design by Joe CantalupoChoreography by Chloe KernaghanScenic Consultant Santiago PerazaFeaturing:Lynne Rosenbergand more!More information on LOVE MACHINE can be found here:

GRUPO DESVIO THEATRE COMPANY PRESENTS
Grupo Desvio Theatre Company is excited to present Misanthrofreak running for a limited time from December 26th to 28th, at 3 Legged Dog.
Directed, written and performed by Rodrigo Fischer, Misanthrofreak is a one-man play that discusses the failures and diculties of decision-making through the appropriation of cinematic language. Using a pathetic-poetic aesthetic, Fischer controls all the lights, sounds, and projections while performing onstage. The audiovisual language simultaneously reinforces, complements, and opposes the theatrical speech allowing the viewer to have an amplified sensory experience. Misanthrofreak encourages a discussion about our contemporary society, and how we are hostages to the logic and ideals we’ve built for ourselves.
Earlier this year, Rodrigo Fischer, representing Grupo Desvio, held an artist residency at the HERE space located in the West Village. His residency culminated in the presentation of what was provisionally called Freak Rehearsal, the first version of Misanthrofreak.

GRUPO DESVIO THEATRE COMPANY PRESENTS

Grupo Desvio Theatre Company is excited to present Misanthrofreak running for a limited time from December 26th to 28th, at 3 Legged Dog.

Directed, written and performed by Rodrigo Fischer, Misanthrofreak is a one-man play that discusses the failures and diculties of decision-making through the appropriation of cinematic language. Using a pathetic-poetic aesthetic, Fischer controls all the lights, sounds, and projections while performing onstage. The audiovisual language simultaneously reinforces, complements, and opposes the theatrical speech allowing the viewer to have an amplified sensory experience. Misanthrofreak encourages a discussion about our contemporary society, and how we are hostages to the logic and ideals we’ve built for ourselves.

Harrowing and unpredictable, TYSON vs. ALI brings the debate heard in hundreds of barbershops across America to life - placing these two giants in the ring together in a way no one has previously imagined.
A volatile combination of dance, theater, and new-media stagecraft, the palpable emotional and physical experience of boxing is examined through the larger-than-life personas of Iron Mike and The Greatest. With choreography by Laura K. Nicoll and script by Frank Boudreaux, leather hits flesh for 9 rounds of action as the boxers spar with each other, interpreting these men and their myths.
