Want to stay ahead of the Game?
First you need to know the rules and how to break them.
To investigate play, Make and Do in collaboration with Project Arts Centre and D.A.T.A 2.0 @ the Science Gallery will host a two day investigation into performance, technology and play.
In an increasingly digitised world, where do we look for meaning and how do we express this? How do we as artists, performers and urban play designers respond to and express these changes? What happens when the space that we work in is constantly shifting? Who are the players and what game are we really playing?
To help answer these questions, Make and Do have invited international artists Duncan Speakman and Peter Petralia from Proto-type to lead workshops in locative play, urban and digital games and interactive performance. We will also include talks with interesting digital artists working in Dublin who we believe are pushing the boundaries of human interaction with technology.
The workshops are aimed at professional theatre-makers, live performers, digital artists and game designers/creators who wish to explore the boundaries of live performance, technology, and interactive games.
Venue: Science Gallery, Trinity College Dublin.
Price: 2 days 100 Euro (includes entry to DATA talk on the 28th)
