Increasingly, people are spending more time in spaces mediated by digital technology. How is that tendency affecting and affected by the creation of performance works?
This workshop will take participants through an understanding of digital integration through the lens of ‘social design’. This approach creates a distinction between the use of digital tools for marketing and their use artistically in a project. This workshop will centre primarily on the artistic implementation through an emerging design department: ‘social design’. Participants will be provided an understanding of the concepts through examples and concepts before being encouraged to develop their own designs for feedback.
“There are subtle and profound ways that the internet will impact the theatre in the 21st century. A new generation is being raised with a supremely intimate and agency-fueled relationship with narrative… It’s something eminently democratic, where ideally anyone can share an experience and anyone has the ability to watch and respond to it. Theatre has to increasingly contend with this new relationship to narrative and audience agency… The internet is reconditioning us to experience narrative in increasingly new ways.
– “Theatre of the Unimpressed, Jordan Tannahill, Coach House (2015)
