Sheron Wray + Fleeta Siegel – Texterritory: SMS performance

The co-creators and performers of Texterritory will discuss this new work where the audience direct the narrative by SMS. This commission for Future Physical incorporates dance, music and poetry. Sheron, currently a Nesta fellow, is working on narrowing boundaries between audience and performer; she also has her own contemporary dance company. Texterritory was made using a Flash interface and XML scripting by Fleeta Siegel. What further possibilities are there for this type of audience interaction?


Bea Gibson- satirical software for Indian call centres

Bea Gibson, founder of the Nungu, will discuss her accent neutralisation software made with Sejal Chad and Adrian Ward. Packaged as a training tool for call center agents in India it is a satirical look at the generic 'globalised' identity. The piece is informed by Bea’s position working between Mumbai and London. To what extent can this type of tactical intervention be used?
