Symposium on Dancing and Braiding


17th May 2019

Site gallery, Sheffield, UK

Tickets now available - £27.50 (£13.75 concs), including lunch and refreshments

Launching AlgoMech Festival, an interdisciplinary symposium bringing together perspectives from digital media, choreography & dance technology, traditional Andean and Ancient Greek textiles, e-textiles, philology, live coding and architecture.

Through talks, discussion and performance, contributors to the symposium will consider their work in the context of interlacing within and between textiles, e-textiles, pattern, structure and movement, including dance. Interfaces between materials, craft technologies, digital engineering, responsive systems, embodied communications, threads, inter-weaving, intertwining, braiding and building will provide a rich vein of dialogue, experimentation and recent practice-led outcomes.

10:00 - 17:00 - Symposium (coffee from 09:30)

Note that following the symposium will be the AlgoMech festival exhibition launch event with dance performance and screening. See https://algomech.com/2019/ for details
