The Digital Performance LAB is a developing devising technique for performances that use technology. We use performances and workshops to learn and to develop devising technique. It is both experiment and a learning process of pervasive technology (digital media). During the different projects we explore the question of the audience and their engagement with the performance, the site and the technology.
We use different methods or performances depending on the theme and the question we investigate. The exploration is usually devised as an ensemble where each member helps to structure the outcome and to the learning process.
Digital Performance LAB was founded in 2010 by Hedva Eltanani in order to pursue the question of using digital technology in live performance and the effect it creates on audience experience.
