TimeWave Festival: Theatre, Technology & Transformation

This is a sponsored post on behalf of TimeWave Festival.

This week, TimeWave Festival fuses theatre and technology, exploring the theme of transformation.

Performances in London will include interactions with artists and audiences from all over the world, pushing the boundaries of storytelling by mixing live performance, telepresence and social media.

New plays by Neil LaBute, Gary Duggan, Jonathan Lewis and many others sit alongside an improvised black comedy, a mirror poem, multimedia dance, film and a roving spy caper around New York and London. Makers have been encouraged to experiment with technology in their work, so expect to see robotics, motion capture data, live video editing and 3-D projection mapping.

TimeWave takes place at digital hub Innovation Warehouse in an old Smithfield Market building over five days, with daily two-hour events populated by a wave of short pieces from playwrights and new-media creators. Some of the action takes place live in London, some is streamed from countries all over the world. Some requires audience interaction to make it happen. Everything will be available to watch online as it happens.

On Saturday 22 June, a panel will discuss how new technology is impacting on creativity, communication and identity, and several after-show soirees and a picnic give artists and audience members an opportunity to mingle in real life.

TimeWave Festival runs Wednesday 19 to Sunday 23 June at Innovation Warehouse, 1 East Poultry Avenue, EC1A 9PT. Check out the full schedule online.

Tickets: Festival pass £35, single tickets £10, concessions £8 (all +bkg fee).
