DDI Setup At Smukfest

August 2nd, 2009 Ed Hunsinger

The Denmark crew has arrived at Smukfest and we spent a jet-lagged day setting up Dance Dance Immolation on a raft. Yes, a raft! Ian setup his camera to take an awesome time-lapse video of the setup process:

DDI Smukfest Setup Timelapse from Interpretive Arson on Vimeo.

The break in the middle where everyone disappears is lunch (though you can see Nicole coming back to check on it while we’re all gone, because she’s like that). The blue tarps went on when it began to drizzle. The video ends just as Ian and Jonathan are walking the inspectors from the Danish Technological Institute through the system (with their 12 year old daughter!) They approved us, though they tell us they need to see our test run Tuesday night. Just to be sure, you understand.

Off to Denmark…

Skanderborg, Denmark
Skanderborg, Denmark

The Denmark crew of Interpretive Arson is on its way across the ocean to shoot Danes with fire! We’ll be in Skanderborg for 10 days, setting up, running, and tearing down Dance Dance Immolation. If you know anyone that lives out in that area of the world, tell them to come check it out! Here’s our official page on Smukfest’s site for those of you that can read Danish.

IA and DDI win Best of the Bay!

July 29th, 2009 Ed Hunsinger

In a surprise announcement, we’ve been informed that Interpretive Arson (with Dance Dance Immolation) has won a Best of the Bay award for “Best Flamin’ Fun” from the SF Guardian.

BEST FLAMIN’ FUN

Kids, really, don’t try this at home. Don’t hook up your two-player Dance Dance Revolution game to a row of flamethrowers. Don’t rig said game to blast your dance competitior with a faceful of fire in front of an adoring crowd if they miss a step. Don’t invest in enough propane to fuel a small jet, a flaming movie screen for projecting all those awkward dance moves onto, and a booming sound system to play all the Japanese bubblegum techno you could ever hope to hear. Leave the setup to Interpretive Arson, whose Dance Dance Immolation game has wowed participants and spectators alike from Black Rock City to Oaktown — and will scorch Denmark’s footsies this fall. Do, however, seek out these intrepid firestarters, and don a giant silver fireproof suit with a Robby the Robot hood. Do the hippie shake to the mellifluous tones of Fatboy Slim and Smile.dk, and prepare yourself to get flamed, both figuratively and literally.
