TimeWave is a new international festival that fuses technology and theatre to explore the theme of 'Transformation' in the 21st Century. See: TIMEWAVEFESTIVAL.COM.
Dates: June 19-23, 2013. Venue: Innovation Warehouse, 1 East Poultry Avenue EC1A 9PT
Produced by LoNyLa (lonyla.com), a global artists’ network in partnership with Innovation Warehouse (theiw.org), a leading British accelerator for digital startups, TimeWave gathers audiences to experience a performance that is simultaneously theatrical, cinematic, and Internet-driven, and where audiences can contribute via social media.
About 150 leading artists from around the world will participate.
Each performance in the festival will consist of a two-hour event, knitting together 8 to 10 short pieces either staged in London or streamed live from NYC, LA or Singapore.
Audiences can participate in TimeWave not only as commentators but also as creators. For example, audiences can interpret a piece in real time. They can hone in on the subtext of a scene and write the dialogue via SMS text inputs, which are then projected as a Twitter feed.
TimeWave will also present a virtual room. A question will be posed - eg, "if you had one power, what would it be?" Remote audiences can pop in and out of the room and answer the question. Instead of a roving interviewer traveling to different parts of the world, people from any region can leap into the virtual space and have their say.
