5G Enabling Tech in Live Performance
The landscape for live performance organisations is transforming. In the not too distant future, the roll out of 5G will create a raft of opportunities for how live performers rehearse, co-create and deliver their work – including the use of immersive technology in the performances. This Hothouse at BT’s purpose built centre, will help your organisation to action plan for the future – enabling you to consider the opportunities 5G offers to live performance and what you want your practice to look like in 5 years’ time. Hear from academics from multiple Universities, BT experts and organisations already embedding tech in their performance to understand the opportunities available.
This hothouse is for live performance creative freelancers / establishments across the entire EIRA region (East Sussex, Kent, Essex, Suffolk, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire and Peterborough) -this includes theatre companies, creative directors, dance companies, musicians and performed spoken word artists.
