The Center for Contemporary and Digital Performance, Brunel University, London
The Center for Contemporary and Digital Performance provides an open interactive laboratory for exploratory research in the time-based arts of theatre, performance and performance media involving a large group of research practitioners in performance at Brunel University’s School of Arts, as well as the research and performing arts organizations affiliated with the activities of these practitioners. Research in performance is rapidly expanding in the contemporary global context of the arts, sciences, education, communication/information economies and creative industries. The polycentric emphases in the new research environment rest on a distinctive trans-disciplinary vision which increasingly fuses artistic performance, writing/composition, theory and performance ethnography with digital creativity, science, and engineering.
While drama and the production of actor-based theatre continue their strong cultural tradition, other modes of performance art, cultural performance behaviour, movement and experimental theatre, camera-based performance, installation and new media/technologically augmented performances extend current practices and the scope of scholarship.
Open to partnerships in research collaboration with others in the School of Arts, the School of Engineering and Design, and institutions elsewhere in the UK and abroad, the new Center’s activities will foster both individual projects in performance, directing, and writing, as well as integrative design projects with real-time synthesis and digital technologies. investigating opportunities for working at the frontiers of performance and technology, where new modes of representation and interaction are invented.
The Center is directed by Johannes Birringer, who also heads the DAP-lab research ensemble and coordinates the annual Performance Research Seminar Series.
