Technology & Performance
We tend to overlook the fact that the development of technology to enhance and support performance has been going on for a long time. Shadow play on a wall emerging from the flickering light of a fire, painted drop-sets transforming place and time and still images sped up and projected through a light source with life like effects are but a few examples of this technological creativity in the service of performance.
Having worked with some of the most innovative technology and stage designs for live performance it has become clear to me that when technology is in support of and about the performance it can provoke a richer experience. Whether moving lights and stages, the interactive visual of a tactile surface at play, or the development of 360/VR narrative and performance experiences, technology will continue to develop and enhance our kinesthetic connectivity to the physicality of performance.
