The Media Lab focused on live visuals, stage design and real-time animated light structures through the combined interaction between screen projection, wooden structures with LED Strip Lights, multicoloured lights and electronic rumblings from modular synths, an interactive dimension of space was created for an improvised performance on stage by alumni from the Faculty of Theatre at LASALLE College of the Arts². 

Grown out of postmodern dance, Viewpoints was a form of improvisation that allowed a group of performers to function together spontaneously and intuitively to generate bold, theatrical work quickly. It developed flexibility, articulation and strength in movement and made ensemble-playing possible. At its core, it gave the performer the tools to make choices in time and space.
