UpStage 101010 - A New Zealand Based Festival of Performance Art.

Review by Ellen Pearlman.

On Oct 10th 2010, the Upstage Festival of Performance Art (101010) 
curated by Helen Varley Jamieson, Vicki Smith, and Dan Untitled ran for 
approximately twenty hours, the fourth such iteration of themed dates 
(last year ran on 090909). 101010 showcased thirteen new cyber 
performances from around the world.

101010 showcased thirteen new cyber performances from Canada, USA, UK, 
France, Germany, Italy, Sweden, Austria, Serbia, Australia, and New 
Zealand, most lasting for twenty minutes. UpStage was host to ten real 
world viewing nodes in Calgary, New York, Nantes, Eindhoven, Oslo, 
Ljubljana, Pancevo, Vietnam, Auckland, and Wellington. Individuals could 
also tune in from the comforts of their own homes.

Ellen Pearlman is currently a Ph.D student at the University of Calgary, 
Canada in Computational Media and Design with a focus on Telematics & 
artistic collaborations over the Syneme high speed networks. She is 
Artistic Adviser to the Yuanfen Gallery, the very first gallery of new 
media in Beijing, China and part of the Yuanfen Flow (TM), the first 
independent, privately owned new media research institute in China.
