Another Language Performing Arts Company and the University of Utah 
Center for High Performance Computing presents our fourth InterPlay 
performance /Dancing on the Banks of Packet Creek/, directed by Jimmy 
Miklavcic, on March 31 - April 2, 2006 at 19:00 MST (-7:00 UTC) on 
Friday and Saturday and 16:00 MDT (-6:00 UTC) on Sunday. InterPlay is a 
multimedia, multi-artist, telematic, and collaborative art form that is 
performed and transmitted over Internet 2 utilizing Access Grid 
technology. Invited national and international institutions, artists, 
scientists and technologists collaborate and participate with Another 
Language in this InterPlay form.

The performance can be viewed by our remote audience through the Access 
Grid in the Theater Venue of the ArtGrid Venue Server at 
https:/agvs.chpc.utah.edu/Venues/default. Please enter the Theater one 
half hour prior to the performance with the Video Consumer Service and 
the Audio Service only. Your audio must be muted and your site must not 
send video. Others can view the performance through QuickTime at 
http://www.anotherlanguage.org/interplay/packetcreek. The live QuickTime 
stream will be active fifteen minutes before the performance. (Note: The 
QuickTime audience will only see the main video mix.)

/Dancing on the Banks of Packet Creek/ is an exploration into the 
tenuous devotion that we have towards the inundating wave of digital 
information and non-experiential knowledge. Packet Creek depicts the 
Internet with its flow of disassembled pieces of data that course 
throughout the world like schools of spawning salmon. Dancing on the 
Banks is our ritualistic gyrations that we express as we create, 
disseminate, search, and acquire this electronic epistemological knowledge.

Using the metaphor of fluid motion and dynamics we will portray the 
immense amount of this non-experiential knowledge and the influence that 
it has on us. The expansive range between truth and fiction or frivolity 
and importance are just some creative investigations and artistic 
expressions that are explored through music, dance, video, computer 
graphics and remote motion capture MIDI control.

Invited national and international institutions, artists, scientists and 
technologists collaborate and participate with Another Language in the 
InterPlay form. "Dancing on the Banks of Packet Creek" will be an 
exciting blend of images and sounds using the Access Grid Video 
Conferencing Technology into a Real-time Collaborative Surrealistic 
Cinematic Performance. Local live performers will be joined in this 
performance by ArtGrid participants from University of Alaska Fairbanks 
and the Arctic Region Supercomputing Center, Boston University, 
University of Maryland, Purdue University and the Envision Center for 
Data Perceptualization, and Ryerson University, Toronto, Ontario Canada. 
As an Internet2 member connected to the Abilene Network, the University 
of Utah provides the network infrastructure and computing facilities 
that make the InterPlay process possible.
