and rehearsal/fine-tuning time = approx 4 to 6 hours)
A square or slightly rectangular space of at least 12 m2 with the possibility
of installing a small camera and a diffused light source directly above
at a height of 4 to 5 meters.
The space could be closed (a room) or open (part of a larger space), and
could possibly adapt itself to other kinds of spaces not yet foreseen,
as long as the space is fairly quiet and well-lit, and that the camera
can be placed high enough to make an appropriate interactive space.
