Digital Echoes Symposium 2013


When: 10:00am – 5:00pm Wednesday March 27th
Where: Coventry University Technology Park, Puma Way, Coventry, CV1 2TT

Digital Echoes 2013 brings together a range of speakers who are developing projects that are making an important contribution to our cultural resources, and are influencing the digital economy.

What impact are digital dance and performance resources having on the digital economy? Digital archives, tools and other kinds of digital resources are being developed by performing artists, for artists and about artists as new modes of capture and transmission. How are these resources changing artists’ practices? How is the work of artists re-presented through these resources? Do they change audiences’ experience of ‘live’ performance? Is having so much access to the artist’s (unseen) making process enriching or diminishing the audience’s experience of the live event? How are these resources influencing policy about funding and support for the performing arts?

Now in its third year, Digital Echoes has grown out of Siobhan Davies RePlay, the online archive of Siobhan Davies Dance, and provides a day for artists, practitioners, archivists and scholars to come together for networking and debate. This year the focus will continue on digital dance resources but will also expand its view to look at film and theatre.

A series of presentations and a chance to hear about emerging projects will be followed by an open discussion.
