November). The performance will take place simultaneously online and at
Watermans <http://www.watermans.org.uk/> in London, at *6.30pm UK time
on Saturday 7 November 2014*.

stage will be available *here* <http://upstage.org.nz/blog/?p=6272> half
an hour before show-time.

/Networks, despite many past promises of disembodiment and
internationalism through the obsolescence of both bodies and
geographical boundaries -- promises now widely perceived as obsolete --
are still experienced by subjects that remain both embodied and
geographically situated (Cohen, 2012: 11) As Cohen argues, not only are
networks firmly connected to material bodies and physical geographies,
but they also play "an increasingly significant role in constructing
embodied experience" (ibid), by both empowering and configuring the
"networked self" (Cohen, 2012: 12)./

The cyberformance will be presented by Christina Papagiannouli and Evi
Stamatiou on site in London, and online by Helen Varley Jamieson,
Miljana Peric' and Vicki Smith.
