Dance in the Digital World explores the possibilities and open conversations for presenting with digital technologies in both live and online contexts

Finding the Fun: using technology in interactive performance
Tim Casson (Casson & Friends)
From The Dance WE Made to Choreocracy, choreographer Tim Casson and his company Casson & Friends, have used technology to develop interactive performance since 2012. In this encounter, Tim will discuss his use of technology from using the tech in your pocket, to a touring wi-fi based laser show and back again! The session will explore how the company have navigated collaborative, artistic, conceptual and practical aspects of using technology to engage more playfully, create agency, and connect meaningfully with audiences and participants.
