101010 UpStage Festival
Performances announced for 101010 UpStage Festival
A record 19 performances have been selected for the 101010 UpStage Festival http://upstage.org.nz/blog/?page_id=680, the fourth annual showcase of cyberformance using the UpStage platform, which takes place this year on and around 10 October.
Artists from 11 countries, traversing seven time zones, will present shows on a wide variety of themes. Common to all shows is the use of UpStage http://upstage.org.nz/, a web-based platform that enables remote performers to collaborate in real time for an online audience. Audiences can easily access the performances with only a standard web browser and internet connection, and there will be "real life access nodes" in some locations.
This year, the programme has been divided into four groups. "Temporal" groups together shows which explore sound and movement across time and networks. The performances in "Trajectory" follow traces, trails and tracks. Thought-provoking and brain-teasing shows can be found in "Tendrils", while those in "Transgress" invite audiences to cross boundaries or limits.
The full list of performances, information about each show and links to participate, is available on the UpStage web site: http://www.upstage.org.nz or contact email@example.com for more information.
