London South Bank University’s Centre for Digital Storymaking is announcing an exciting partnership with V&A Digital Programmes.
The inaugural event in the partnership series will take place on Friday 19 January 2018 at The Sackler Centre. The Centre for Digital Storymaking and V&A Digital Programmes present interactive version of the performance Kjell Theøry by Chicago based ATOM-r collective (Anatomical Theatres of Mixed Reality). ATOM-r is a provisional collective, founded by two former members of Goat Island, exploring forensics, anatomy, and 21st century embodiment through performance, language, and emerging technologies.
On the evening, the performance will be contextualised by insights from academic and theatremaker Dr Stephen Farrier and Professor Rosemary Klich, whose research explores multimedia performance and queerness. Audiences will also have the opportunity to hear Mark Jeffery and Judd Morissey from ATOM-r talk about their work and process.
