Elétrico - Research Group in Cyberdance is a core activity developed by the Advanced Body Research Laboratory (LaPAC) of the Dance School of the Federal University of Bahia (UFBA). The group's main interest of research is to interface the language of contemporary dance  with digital and interactive technologies. 

 

Elétrico was founded by Ludmila Pimentel in 2002 to develop research within the graduate and undergraduate programs of the Dance School, and it aims to expand specific knowledge in the area of​​ dance and new technologies.

 

Elétrico focuses not only on academic investigation but also produces hybrid contemporary cyberdance artworks, inserting and contextualizing the Dance School in the technological and digital environment in which we live.
