Lunchtime Talks at the Pervasive Media Studio
Mayfest co-production: Automated Theatre and Human Agency
Lunchtime Talks are a series of informal presentations at Watershed's Pervasive Media Studio. They normally take place at 13:00 on a Friday, are free and are open to everybody who is interested in what they do. Come along, bring a sandwich, and get to know more about the Studio community, current and up-coming projects, or residents' work.
With Mayfest in full swing, run by our lovely friends at MAYK, for this Lunchtime Talk we have invited Composer and New Media Artist, Remy Siu who is working on Mayfest show Town Choir to tell us more about his work.
Remy Siu is a composer and new media artist based in Vancouver, BC. His work focuses on the creation of performance apparatuses that employ automation and digital game mechanics as score. He will discuss how his music background, interdisciplinary performing arts processes, and the economic forces in Vancouver have collided to influence the development of his practice. He will speak about the systems that define his works "Foxconn Frequency (no.3) - for three visibly Chinese performers" and "new eyes - for [single] player."
MAYK is a theatre producing organisation that collaborates with artists and audiences to makes exciting things happen in unusual ways, find out more about the festival and how you can buy tickets, here.
The Pervasive Media Studio is located within the Watershed building. Let us know if you'd like a tour and we'll be happy to show you around. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
