CultureHub presents Staging the Network: A Discussion about Telecommunications for Performance livestreaming on the global, commons-based peer produced HowlRound TV network at howlround.tv on Monday, October 13 at 6:30pm EDT (New York) / 11:30pm BST (London) / 22:30 GMT / 5:30pm CDT (Austin) / 3:30pm PDT (Vancouver) / Tuesday, October 14 at 9:30am AEDT (Sydney).
Core to CultureHub’s practice is the desire to investigate methods in which performing arts venues can use emerging network technologies such as WebRTC to facilitate and augment live performance. This discussion will bring representatives from the EU-funded project Vconect (Falmouth University and CWI), network art collective INTACT, and CultureHub together to discuss the artistic, cultural, and technical implications of employing telepresence and other internet based technologies in live, multi-location performance.
