Threefold Value Interface

3 Fader: the faders 1, 2 and 3 represent different evaluation criteria.
The evaluation is made after every round. At least one fader must be moved.
The criteria of the faders is determined as follows:

Physical Quality - Body - "What and Where?"
Technique: Athleticism, Body Control, Dynamics, Spatial Control
Variety: Vocabulary, Variation

Artistic Quality - Mind - "How and Who?"
Creativity: Progression from the Foundation, Response, Improvisation
Personality: Stage Presence, Character

Interpretive Quality - Soul - "Why and When?"
Performance: Composition, Impact, Authenticity
Musicality: Coherence, Texture, Rhythm



Trivium Value System

The judges are evaluating the competitors by comparing their skills.
Each judge analyzes the different performances by using the criteria of the Trivium Value System to create an assessment.

The Trivium Value System developed by Niels "Storm" Robitzky and Kevin "Renegade" Gopie in collaboration with and8.dance is based on cross-faders to value the participants performance. The judges can use one or all cross-faders to create the best possible representation of their interpretation of the observed skill. The judges must submit their votes after every round of the battle.

The Trivium Value System has 6 cross-faders, each one represents a criteria. All criteria interlink with one another.

Physical Quality - Body - "What and Where?"
Technique: (value 20%) Athleticism, Body Control, Dynamics, Spatial Control
Variety: (value 13,333%) Vocabulary, Variation

Artistic Quality - Mind - "How and Who?"
Creativity: (value 20%) Progression from the Foundation, Response, Improvisation
Personality: (value 13,333%) Stage Presence, Character

Interpretive Quality - Soul - "Why and When?"
Performance: (value 20%) Composition, Impact, Authenticity
Musicality: (value 13,333%) Coherence, Texture, Rhythm

Judges also look out for form, execution, confidence, spontaneity, repeat, bite, crash, slip, wipe out or misbehaviour - these values are also considered as part of the Trivium Value System.
