Research Seminar on Dance TECH TV LIVE


We hope you enjoyed our research seminar series at the Centre for Contemporary and Digital Performance. As in previous years, and in our Artaud Forum series that we began in 2011, we try to focus on how praxis and theory in performance and theatre shifts as they are informed, challenged and or altered by other disciplines,processes or art forms.
