GAMES AS [performing] ARTS: Festival and artist in residency
7-15 June 2018 Penryn Campus Falmouth University
The festival aims to be a place to explore the links between traditional art practices, games and technology. In advance of, and alongside the festival, an artist in residence will study the potential for movement and dance to re-imagine how we relate to machines, exploring how robots can become playful, social performers, without mimicking human beings. Artist in residence Petra Gemeinboeck and director and choreographer Sarah Levisnky will conduct a series of public workshops for schools in partnership with the gallery in the first week of May.
