ultra modern – very social

Another Motherboard project, ultra modern – very social is a streaming theatre concept for 2002 and beyond. This space is dedicated to the pursuit of experimental theatre which is somehow modulated and mediated by the intermediary influences of the net, but may also involve communcation appliances such as telephones, mobile phones, walkie-talkies, radio, etc. Our emphasis is on improvisation and experimentation where “here and now” and “there and then” are relative expressions in collaborative networked spaces.

Networked Local Performances

Three Performances: 2001-03: A Comment

The three location-specific performances Dialtones: A Telesymphony, Flip Flop, and Texterritory –you had to be there to experience them–introduced in the last posts were produced between 2001 and 2003 They made use of networked technologies–mobile phones, video/audio relayed by wireless broadband–to involve their audiences in the creation of the performances. Each has done this successfully in its own way, while maintaining control, in the case of Dialtones, a tight control, over the performance itself.
