Live Coding Tools for Choreography: Creating Terpsicode

Kate Sicchio; Zeshan Wang; Marissa Forbes

Terpsicode is a developing mini programming language for live coding dance performance scores. This paper explores the process of creating a choreographic patterning language using images, and discusses the creation, capturing, and naming of movement. It also reflects on the premiere performance using this system with a live coder and improvising dancer and how score-making with code may be translated by a performer. The final result of this venture seeks to provide a computer language for choreography that utilises dance terminology alongside visual performance scores that may be used within various improvising settings
