The festival, which also launched the rebuilt UpStage platform, featured three cyberformances: "Go Go Go" by Schaumbad; "ReMove" by Teater InterAkt; and "Repose" by Vicki Smith and collaborators (Aotearoa New Zealand). Works-in-progress of these performances were shown at Bodies:On:Live in June. The video also shows some of the research and development, and has been edited by Suzon Fuks.
The project has been a lot of fun so far and has attracted a really great team of collaborators, including a 50% female software development team, and largely female artistic team, led by Helen Varley Jamieson.
Mobilise/Demobilise continues throughout 2022, so there will be more opportunities to see the performances live; & UpStage is there for other artists to use for their own projects as well.
