I-BEAM is a national project to see what happens when you
ask leading Dancers to design their own typeface. With 26
letters and 10 numbers at their disposal, individual dancers
and dance companies will be approached to develop their
own unique set of fonts.
Will they generate their fonts through performing the letters?
Will they use their bodies in their design? How will it
look when we try and spell particular words? Or will the
font be legible at all?
Available to download from the internet for all to use,
the I-BEAM project promises to provide a fascinating insight
into how Dancers design and think.
