You are only the sum of your data
Join us as one of 40 audience members, in our quest to shape the future of our digital world. Brought to you on 5 and 6 June 2017 by Bedford Creative Arts in partnership with University of Bedfordshire Theatre Studio, dance company Pell Ensemble invites you into the world of EPOQ: a place of where your data becomes a Lived Experience™.
Using your mobile phone, you will interact with David, shaping David’s movements and the projections and sound around you and David. Only with your input can David come to life and become truly human. Asking important questions about how data-gathering is shaping our world and sense of self, this intimate dance performance employs you and your mobile phone to explore our possible future in human and digital form. Will we continue to upload for an easier life or will we unplug and preserve our humanity?
Choreographer and Artistic Director of Pell | Ensemble, Rebecca Evans is the recent The BENCH commission awardee with her recent work 'The Other' touring internationally with 2Faced Dance.
'David' is a collaboration between Pell | Ensemble, interactive designers Indivisible Arts, Clarisse O'Dell and David Altweger.
