Event description

Description

What is this?

At the beginning of 2018 at the annual performing arts gathering, D&D, a session was called on Theatre and Tech. A group of people talked for an hour about exciting projects that take place at this intersection; how we might share knowledge more effectively; how we might develop critical frameworks; cool new stuff; and of course, funding. At the end of the session, a plan was made for regular gatherings, potentially coinciding with festivals, where performance-makers, computational artists, creative technologists and other interested people could come together, see work, share practice and potentially spark new relationships. These meet-ups would be open to anyone to attend.

The first Performance & Digital Tech gathering took place in August 2018, in Newcastle Gateshead in the North East, hosted by local companies Unfolding Theatre and fanSHEN. The second took place in July 2019 at Pervasive Media Studio in Bristol, hosted by Pervasive Media Studio and the University of the West of England. This will be the third in the series and is open to all, including those who were not present at the first two. If your stuff involves performance and tech in some way, you are more than welcome.

If you cannot the Thursday evening it is OK to just come on the Friday.

Thursday 10 October – Digital Catapult

Creative XR showcase networking event at Digital Catapult - TIME TBC

10am: start

Morning: meeting, introductions, sharing of provocations about things that we would like to be better and reflections on things we have learned and the mistakes we have made. People are invited to bring a problem that they would like solving, either relating to their own work or, ideally, the sector more widely. Planning of agenda for the rest of the day. Potential tour of studios/kit etc if that is of interest.

Rest of the day: discussions of ideas and plans that emerge from the morning’s discussion and themes and questions that people bring.
