UpStage 121212

121212 UpStage Festival of Cyberformance

The 121212 UpStage Festival of Cyberformance will take place 5-12 December 2012 and consist of two parts:

>>> “Walking backwards into the future” – a program of 19 remounted cyberformances from the past five festivals (5-11 December)

>>> “Testing – 1 2, 1 2, 1 2″ – new works in UpStage and other networked platforms (12 December).

Marking a turning point in what has become an annual event, 121212 is the last year that we can use this date format, and also this year we hope to see the launch of a new engine for the UpStage platform, DownStage, extending the possibilities of what we can do.

We have opened up the festival to artists creating cyberformance in platforms other than UpStage, as there are now many other interesting platforms, and this has resulted in an excellent range of proposals.

The programme of online performances, which can be watched from internet-connected computers anywhere in the world, will be augmented by “real-life access nodes” in numerous locations. Here is the link to information about hosting a node and email zn.gro.egatspu@ofni if you are interested. The 121212 nodes will be announced later in the year.
