Breath Catalogue (Megan Nicely/Dance + Kate Elswit)
A cabinet of breath curiosities: contemporary choreography meets medical technology.

Breath Catalogue is a collaborative work by artist/scholars Megan Nicely and Kate Elswit, and data scientist/interaction designer Ben Gimpert, together with composer Daniel Thomas Davis and set designer Terrance Graven. The project combines choreographic methods with medical technology to externalize breath as experience. Dance artists link breathing and movement patterns in both creation and performance. Our goal is to expand the intrinsic dance connection between breath and gesture by visualizing and making audible the data obtained from the mover's breath, and incorporating this into the choreographic process to make the breath perceptible to the spectator. To do so, we are working with prototypes of breath monitors from the San Francisco-based startup Spire.
