Critical Ideas brings together artists, critics, scholars and audiences to discuss formal, social and ideological issues affecting performance practice and reception.
Algorithmic and design-driven theatre; dances with machines; sound installations that foreground analog or digital technologies: human bodies are no longer the sole focus of attention in much contemporary performance. Artists discuss why, and how, such practices are part of a larger rethinking of our material world.
