Course Description

COVID-19 has put a lot of us into an unexpectedly long period of staying home and segregation from our routines and normal social lives in most of the year 2020. A big part of our lives have shifted drastically from in-person to online interactions, from taking classes, professional meetings, hanging out to having big birthday parties. Have you been curious about how you could be more creative with online platforms? Would you like to create performances that specifically work with the internet, allowing you to connect and perform with others from various locations?

Telematic Together is an experimental multimedia performance class that aims to explore the creative capacities of telematic technologies and connectedness. We explore various platforms and softwares, as well as performance concepts and design approaches to experiment with dimensions of creative expression through telematic performances. Throughout the course, you will get to learn the basics of network/telematic performance, low latency video and audio streaming, explore various platforms for your performances, and some tools that allow you to design your performances and express your ideas. We aim to help you build a performance tool box for your future performances, as well as create a supportive safe space to brainstorm, test out, discuss and polish your ideas.

Each week, you should expect to learn hands-on skills and knowledge of telematic technologies or performances. You will then be paired up with different participants to create short performances in small groups, present to each other and discuss.

Please note: this is a special class that takes place once every two weeks to allow for time to craft performances with others. Specific class dates:

13. & 27. February;

13. & 27. March;

10. April.

Who is this course for?

The class is designed for emerging artists of all kinds who are interested in incorporating telematic technologies in their practice. We see “performances” in a very broad sense: it can range from sound, visual, movements, theater, multimedia to transdisciplinary and many more. No prior experience necessary.
