OPEN PLATFORM_6 16 May 2015 @DoItAnyway2015 - OPEN CALL

RAP(s) - Random Access Performances - TwT.doitanyway - OPEN CALL 
Do It Anyway Festival at Access Space, Sheffield, UK
Saturday, 16 May 2015, 6-9pm

OPEN PLATFORM/RAP(s) - TwT. returns this year as part of Do it Anyway International Digital Arts Festival @AccessSpace in May and we invite you to contribute to another unforgettable evening of digital randomness! 

Experiment, perform, express, dance, present, sing, rap, read, or just tell us about your digital project or work - but without using anything digital! You really know your stuff - then do it! You have never performed or presented before? Do it anyway! You think you know nothing about computers? Do it anyway! You struggle to switch off? Go on and do it anyway! Anything goes as long as it is about or related to digital technology, 1 to 10 minutes in duration and happening on some sort of platform. You can use the wooden platform provided (65x95cm) or make your own.

OPEN PLATFORM_6/RAP(s) - TwT.doitanyway is open to anyone interested in re-thinking the digital and not limited to artists or professional performers/presenters. 'Technology without Technolggy' (TwT) performances are a creative, playful strategy to negotiate the 'unknowable' of digital technology and the constant information overload in our contemporary world.

OPEN PLATFORM/RAP(s) - TwT. is a micro event that explores the digital with physical means by asking performers to present digital work without using anything digital. In a small, intimate space performers take up the challenge of re-thinking the digital with free interpretations that are 1 to 10 minutes in duration, about or related to digital technology and happening on some sort of platform.

Join the TwT.(Technology without Technology) network today and help us build an even bigger digital network with physical means!

Do It Anyway Festival 2015 will run from Friday, 15 May to Sunday, 17 May and will be the first Pixelache Network International Digital Arts Festival in the UK! As the UK hub of the network Access Space is bringing arts practice from across Northern Europe - with participating artists from Finland, France, Iceland, Norway and Latvia - to Sheffield, South Yorkshire. Over the weekend the festival will feature free digital arts performances and workshops. More info here.
