A collective art exhibition, part of Games as Arts / Arts as Games Festival. This second edition entitled Games As [performing] Arts, will investigate the relationships between games, performance and AI, through shared notions of play. The exhibition will showcase works from international artists Stéphane Bissières and Petra Gemeinboeck, as well as performance related games: Bouden, Johann Sebastian Joust and the clapping music app of the London Sinfonietta. Visitors will experience live performing robotics installations, playful hybrid music instruments, interactive video pieces and video games all combined with public workshops.

GAMES AS [performing] ARTS: Festival & 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.
