We are proud to announce that following the conference in April 2013 there will be a special issue of the journal Liminalities dedicated to Remote Encounters. Dates and full details of publication will be posted here closer to the time.
The schedule and registration (early bird prices until January 1st 2013) for the networked performance conference Remote Encounters: Connecting bodies, collapsing spaces and temporal ubiquity in networked performance is now online.
The conference will over its two day sessions and performance evening pull together a number of practitioners and academics who are working in a variety of exciting ways with networks in performance contexts. These will cover web based performance, streaming media, sonic practices, metaverses, custom networked electronics, dance and theatre; each exploring a wealth of topics and themes.
With proposals still coming in we have now extended the deadline until 4pm, the 30th of September. We have received some particularly strong proposals for both papers and performances however decisions on the final programme won’t be made until after September 30th. If you missed the deadline, were on holidays etc. and are interested in submitting a proposal now is your chance.
We are particularly keen to receive more paper proposals as we feel not all of the breadth and diversity that is networked performance is currently addressed in the proposals we have received. Papers that explore unusual interpretations of networked performance, emerging experimental practice, comparitive analysis of practice, an historical overview etc. are encouraged.
