Visual Performance Program

In this program you will explore the role of the visualist and prepare for the challenges you may face in a live show, while learning the basics of performing, producing, and manipulating visual content. You will also develop a deeper understanding of the history of visual performance, referencing the history of the performing arts and expanded cinema.

Dubspot’s Visual Performance curriculum was designed by V Owen Bush and Benton-C Bainbridge ofGlowing Pictures, a company they founded together in 2004. Bush and Bainbridge are pioneers of live visual performance, with an extensive list of collaborators and credits including work with the Beastie Boys, Pauline Oliveros, Animal Collective, Flying Lotus, Four Tet, Grace Jones, Kanye West, and Moby, to name a few. They have presented their work across five continents, at venues like the Whitney Museum of American Art, Museum of Modern Art, Lincoln Center, Madison Square Garden, the American Museum of Natural History, SFMOMA, the Mercat des les Flors (Barcelona), LUX2006 (Sevilla), Auditorium Parco della Musica (Roma), Sonic Light (Amsterdam), Wien Modern (Vienna), Inventionen (Berlin), and the Teatro Colón CETC (Buenos Aires). Over the years they have innovated and helped to develop tools and techniques for visual performance, collaborating with the software design company Vidvox LLC to develop live video software including VDMX, the central application used in the course
