"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
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, 
aiming to acknowledge the relevance of experimental treatments of actuality – 
of forms of collaborative creation – that may take us beyond the perspectives 
and protocols of (established academic) inquiry as we know it. 

Which is why we have chosen "gesture" as focus of the 2012 workshop – gesture 
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. 

Applications and expressions of interested accepted now >>   Please note that 
at this point we would like to receive expressions of interest rather than 
fully developed proposals for panel discussions and papers or performances.

Open enrolment: 
Full Workshop Pass:  full: £ 50 / concession £ 40
Day Pass: £ 25 / concession £ 20 /  
Tickets for evening concerts:  £ 5
