Break out of the box and off the screen with CultureHub during this two day festival celebrating the diverse means by which we continue to push the human experience forward.

For experimental artists, tinkerers and hackers re-purposing media to expand the boundaries of creative interaction. CultureHub will host OFF THE SCREEN [MEDIA CIRCUS] which will turn the Ellen Stewart Theatre at La MaMa into our arts-tech playground, meeting place and networked performance space. We want you to join us!

How can we enhance the telematic* experience?
How can we push past the screen?
What is the role of architecture in telematic art and communication?
What does it mean to make art in networked environments?
How can technology allow audiences to interact and play in new and exciting ways?
