‘You must go on. I can’t go on. I’ll go on’

It’s been a hectic few months and its not over yet! Since September I’ve presented at three conferences where I’ve discussed my research into digital immersion and audience as networks.

The conferences were: Radical Immersions, Watermans Art Centre; Performance and the Archive: Presence, Absence, and Digital Memory; University of Galway; and Zip-Scene: Interactive Narratives – the Future of Storytelling and Immersion in mixed reality mediums and performing arts, Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design, Budapest.

I’ll be writing about all three events in a longer post next week. My brain is melting with ideas…not least on the fascinating intersection between gaming cultures/technologies/narratives and digital theatre practices.

And archivist Erin Lee has written a great precis of the Galway event: https://lnkd.in/g7sBHKv

In the mean time I’m teaching performative writing at Arthaus in Berlin this weekend. This is a new part of my teaching role at Rose Bruford where I was recently made module coordinator of the Vade Mecum/Performative Writing course, which acts as the ‘spine’ to all of the masters’ programmes. I’ll be working with the students on ideas of autobiography, autotopography, and creative approaches to documentation using Caryl Churchill’s play Here We Go.

Full steam ahead!
