With limited opportunity for national and international mobility in the Arts Sector, the last two years have revolutionised artist and audience engagement in digital and hybrid performance. In response to these new ways of collaborating, making, and presenting, APAM will run an immersive digital program exploring the market for hybrid and digital performance.

PAUSE, PLAY, PERFORM is a digital program running 24-27 May.

Registrations close 18 May so register now. Free to attend.

Highlights include:

  • Digital Sovereignty – Technology on our Terms. A First Nations Panel discussion on self-determination in the digital space.
  • The opening day Keynote with Dr Kate Craddock, an innovator in both programming and presenting hybrid and digital work.
  • BlakDance + BlakForm: An in-depth look at how BlakDance engaged and adapted their Critical Response Process to create constructive virtual dialogue for works in development.

A multidisciplinary event, PAUSE, PLAY, PERFORM will invite participants from across the country and internationally to engage in a digital program of performance, dialogue, and networking. Participants will include national and international presenters invited to attend by APAM.
