Blast Theory Summer School

Blast Theory are holding a summer school for practitioners, performers and artists at University College Falmouth’s The Performance Centre 18-20 July 2012.

Spend three days working with internationally renowned group Blast Theory to explore how technology can be used to create site specific, participatory performances and interactive art. Participants will work between the old Orchard at Tremough and the high specification performance facilities of The Performance Centre at University College Falmouth.

Blast Theory is known as one of the most adventurous artists’ groups using interactive media, creating groundbreaking new forms of performance and interactive art that mix audiences across the Internet, live performance and digital broadcasting. Led by Matt Adams, Ju Row Farr and Nick Tandavanitj, the group’s work explores interactivity and the social and political aspects of technology. It confronts a media saturated world in which popular culture rules, using performance, installation, video, mobile and online technologies to ask questions about the ideologies present in the information that envelops us.

The course runs 19-20 July 2012, 9am – 5pm, and costs £150. Location: Studio A & The Orchard, The Performance Centre, Tremough Campus, Penryn, TR10 9LX.
