In partnership with the Young Vic Creators Program
Wed 13 Apr, 4pm - 6pm (BST)
Free Zoom event
As new technologies provide more power to create, they also bring up questions and choices creators didn’t need to navigate before. New technologies have seen accelerated adoption by theatre-makers during the theatre closures of 2020/21 - from Augmented, Virtual and Extended Reality to Artificial Intelligence, Immersive and Haptic Technology and Binaural and other forms of audio.
But whose experience(s) do we simulate or augment, where does ableism meet technology, and how do we keep experiences accessible and inclusive? And how do we deal with pervasive technology, user data and the moral implications of simulating or faking reality to almost imperceptible veracity? This event brings together creators at the forefront of innovation with thinkers in technoethics.
