DanceTag Dance Game


DanceTag is a location-based gaming app, funded by the Digital R&D Fund for the Arts, a fund that supports collaborations between organisations with arts projects, technology providers and researchers.

DanceTag was developed by Pavilion Dance South West (PDSW), Mobile Pie and the University of the West of England.

PDSW and its partners explored how a digital intervention could be engineered to connect people who like to dance, using their immediate surroundings as a backdrop and inspiration.

The research question was: Can a playful mobile platform enhance engagement and participation in a particular art form?

The app was able to challenge the creativity of dancers, enable them to create new work quickly, see what their dance looked like and explore the relationship between their dance and location.
