Overview

Avant-garde digital performance probing audience-artist interaction

Description

Internationally acclaimed Japanese choreographer and multi-disciplinary avant-garde artist Hiroaki Umeda returns – virtually – with his latest work in progress. A follow-up to With/out Umeda (2020), devised in response to cancellations of in-person performances, this work continues his exploration of new possibilities for audience-artist interactions in a post-COVID world.

Taking psychology, cognitive science and gaming technologies like AR and eye-tracking as his starting points, Umeda invites us to ponder what is most relevant for our own body’s experience, whether online or physical, real or virtual, micro or macro, individual or collective.

Umeda joins us online from Japan for a post-performance panel discussion and Q&A session.
