“The Poetics of Digital”

A meditation on the emerging poetics of digital tools used in live performance. How are artists using digital tools, particularly the pervasive technology of smart devices, in live performance? How does this differ from how these devices are used day-to-day? Delivered through participatory intervention and hybrid engagement.
