Konnecting Gestures
International Conference-Workshop on Performance and Sound Technologies
Friday March 30 - Sunday, April 1, 2012
A two-day conference and performance laboratory
held at the Antonin Artaud Performance Centre
Brunel University, Uxbridge, West London (UK)


This symposium and performance laboratory is the second installment of the 
series of annually held research events at Brunel University's Antonin Artaud 
Performance Centre, bringing together an invited group of international 
theatre, performance and sound artists, musicians, digital artists, art 
theorists and researchers engaged in creative practices that reflect on major 
innovative performance traditions of the past century and their impact on 
current performance knowledge and physical (or physical-digital) techniques.

The ARTAUD FORUM promotes opening up the concept of performance research, and 
continuing last year's intertwined approach to physical and conceptual 
exploration of practice, it emphasizes the relevance of experimental treatments 
of actuality - of forms of collaborative creation - that may take us beyond the 
perspectives and protocols of established academic or artistic inquiry. Even as 
we turn to technologies of performances this year, artistic and conceptual 
criteria will be significant, and we have chosen expressive inter/relations - 
"konnecting gestures" as the focus of the 2012 workshop - gestures as practice 
that is at once aesthetic, corporeal, technical and political.
The lab will offer a series of parallel modules investigating the relations 
between choreography and software, sound and motion-design, movement capture 
and 3d digital/virtual environment navigation, light and projection 
architecture, dirty electronics, hacking and interactive programming.

The symposium and workshop are composed of dialogue and performance practice, 
intermixed with film screenings and a hands-on electronics and wearable design 
workshop as well as live coding sessions in the digital performance studio.

Artaud Performance Centre


The partnership between the Center and dancetechTV is an experiment in 
collaborative video broadcasting. The channel allows worldwide 24/7 linear 
broadcasting of selected programs, LIVE streaming and Video On-demand, and is 
enveloped within dance-tech.net, a donation based platform.
