AlgoMech: Festival of Algorithmic and Mechanical Movement
AlgoMech is coming to Sheffield City Centre for the first time from the 12th-19th November 2016. A week of performances, talks and workshops will showcase creative processes and celebrate making in performance.


This new festival brings together a diverse range of art forms and mixes them up to present a creative mosaic of machines, live coding, music, dancing and power tools. From clog dances that mimic industrial looms to techno music created with mechanisms built during the performance; cellos are turned into computers; textile patterns become musical compositions - this hand-crafted programme features performances and events that aim to challenge and inspire. Audiences will also have the opportunity to get involved in workshops exploring how to make visuals and music with text, or learn to play a traditional Basque instrument, the txalaparta. (It’s not as hard as it sounds!)

Alongside this, an arts-research symposium will be hosted by the Sheffield Institute of Arts, including talks and performances on the theme of Algorithmic and Mechanical Movement. The symposium will be chaired by Thor Magnusson and Chris Kiefer from the University of Sussex, with a keynote speech from Godfried-Willem Raes.

Venues: Millennium Gallery, Sheffield Institute of Arts (Hallam University), Access Space and Dina.

Ticket prices vary. Some events are free.
