This Friday, September 21st, the newly-launched videogame culture supersite Venus Patrol will be presenting the first iteration of THE DANCINGULARITY, a free, interactive dance-party experience being put together for Fantastic Arcade and Fantastic Fest guests by Kokoromi, the game collective helmed by Heather Kelley, Cindy Poremba, Damien Di Fede, and Fez creator Phil Fish.

Self-described as “a hypothetical but unavoidable point in time when people come together and dance to create the visuals of an interactive DJ set”, THE DANCINGULARITY will carpet the floor of the Highball lounge with a grid of disused Dance Dance Revolution mats and give players full foot-control over the projected display, in hopes of triggering the dancingularity itself.
Fish & Di Fede will be providing the music (with the latter also doing double duty on the creation of the hardware and software itself), and Kelley taking on the role of DM (Dance Master), in charge of manipulating the software live. Get ready for a strange brew of boozy sock-hop and DIY tech!

Friday September 21, 2012 9:00pm - 11:00pm CDT
The Highball 1142 S Lamar Blvd, Austin, TX 78704
