Brooklyn Ballet and NYC Resistor Collaborate on Interactive Costumes

For their 2014 season show “Vectors, Marys, and Snow,” the Brooklyn Ballet has unveiled interactive, illuminated costumes built in collaboration with NYC Resistor, a Brooklyn hackerspace. The costumes include tutus that simulate snowfall with LEDs and a motion sensor activated costume for street dancer Mike “Supreme” Fields. The final run of “Vectors, Marys, and Snow” is April 11 through 13 at the The Actors Fund Arts Center in Brooklyn. The Brooklyn Ballet is financing the project through Kickstarter.
