Brighton Digital Festival 2017

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. 

Here are our highpoints:

Last year we hosted AɸE’s work-in-progress, Whist, as part of the Virtual Reality LAB. They return this year with the piece fully developed into an hour long experience that explores the dreams, fears and desires of a fictional family; a story inspired by Sigmund Freud. A multi-dimensional digital journey that merges Physical Theatre, Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR

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

12.30pm – 4.30pm; Thursday 5 October, The Lighthouse, 28 Kensington Street, Brighton BN1 4AJ

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

Katie Dale Everett Dance invites you to explore the footprint we leave on society through our social media interaction in her triptych work Digital Tattoo. Through film, performance and audience participation, she reveals how our unconscious data trail can speak volumes about our quest for approval and social gratification. Bring a smartphone to be part of the performance

8pm, Tuesday 10 October at Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts booking link

We also have a personal development event taking place for people working with young people and e-safety in the digital, arts and cultural sector; check out Our Digital Wellbeing for more information.
