Mixed-reality performer-guided performance is a new style of performance art that facilitates impromptu interactions among dancers and virtual characters in realtime using wearable technologies. In this paper, we present the design of a full-stack wearable integration platform, called WISE (Wearable Item Service runtimE), that supports such performance art behind the scene. WISE deals core issues such as connectivity, manageability, context-awareness, and simplicity of the performance art. The experiment results show that the platform is stable and is able to drive the performance smoothly. Finally, we demonstrate the feasibility of WISE platform by conducting a live interactive public performance called Future Circus supported by the proposed platform.
