Venue: NIDA Melbourne | Suite 4 | 152 Sturt Street, Southbank, VIC 3006
Date/Time: 16 Aug 2018 - 16 Aug 2018

Curated by Experimenta Media Arts in collaboration with NIDA, this Experimenta Social special looks at how artists are using technology in performance. Technology is transforming traditional approaches to the craft of scenography and is also opening up new pathways for audience engagement. Projection and data mapping are just some components of the expanding toolkit at the disposal of today’s set designers, while digital platforms are allowing for direct personal interaction with individual audience members. Join us as we present two artists who through their practice are opening up new possibilities in the creation of performance worlds.
