Workshop on Distributed performances in Barcelona

The Theatre Institute of Barcelona will host the workshop on Cocreation, distributed performances and alternative content for the big screen during the 10th and 11th of November 2014 

This workshop, co-organized by the Foundation i2CAT, the Government of Catalonia and the Theatre Institute of Barcelona, will examine the gradual adoption of technological environments in the performing arts and how the expanding of bandwidth have given rise to new forms of creative expression and space for experimentation and new business models for performing arts, reaching other spaces such as movie screens and cultural institutions with the distribution of high-definition content. 

During two days, international and local representatives, experts and creative will share and present the technological tools and share their experiences, focusing on the evolution of distributed environments, creative hubs and cultural broadcasting. The program has been developed considering the artists and technicians interested in co-creation. Representatives from different cultural and academic institutions in Europe (England, Italian, Netherlands and Catalonia among others) will meet to share experiences, establish synergies and explore future collaborations. Among the speakers who will participate in the workshop include Robert Delamere, co-founder and creative director of Digital Theatre; Andy Lavender, University of Surrey; artist and performer Marcel·lí Antúnez and Sarah Whatley, dance professor and director of the Center for Dance Research (C-Dare) at Coventry University in representation of the European project Riches
