- - - in short - - -
More than 100 performance artists from around the world come together in December for the
121212 Upstage Festival of Cyberformance – a festival of innovative live performance all
created and performed online.
(find out more here http://upstage.org.nz/blog/
Attending the 121212 UpStage Festival of Cyberformance is completely free for anyone – but
it costs money to produce, so organisers are seeking donations to help make it happen.
The annual festival, now in its sixth year, is organised by artists Vicki Smith and Helen
Varley Jamieson, with a team of dedicated volunteers in New Zealand and around the world –
online meetings of the team cross multiple timezones and languages.
The festival takes place online from 5-13 December, during which 38 innovative live
performances will be offered via a variety of online platforms – all free of charge and
accessible via a standard internet connection and browser.
A Creative New Zealand grant provides some assistance, however additional funds must still
be raised to cover the organisational costs of the festival. Anyone planning to attend the
festival is invited to donate in lieu of buying a ticket :)
