Brighton Digital Festival 2017 is upon us and South East Dance has partnered up with a range of choreographers, visual artists and tech maestros to bring you an array of mind-bending and thought-provoking shows.

Performances throughout the day from 11am – 9pm; 19 & 20 September at The Old Market (14 yrs +)
Camouflage brings together digital artists Mária Júdová and Andrej Boleslavský, choreographer Patricia Okenwa and the Renaud Wiser Dance Company over two days of research, development and performance. Using VR headsets and Motion Sensor technology as choreographic tools, they test themes of the predator vs prey, hide & seek and sensory deprivation on the hunter and the hunted. Please come along and be a part of the installation on day 1 which will help develop the dynamics at play into a performance on day 2. It’s a playful interactive experience but one that may raise some unsettling questions about our evolving relationship with technology. Free and no need to book

4pm – 6.45pm, Werks Central, Business Centre, 15 – 17 Middle Street, Brighton BN1 1AL
