future physical commissions

Future Physical Commissions are a shinkansen, East England Arts, Lee Valley Park Authority and Arts Council Dance Department Collaboration.

The Future Physical Programme involves 25 commissions specially tailored to suit the Future Physical concept and programme. 16 are linked to an open call for Commissions, 4 are targetted commissions and 5 are still to be advertised. The Future Physical commissions are regional, national and international.

The Future Physical Launch on September 13th 2002 announces the successful recipients of the first 20 commissions. These commissions represent some of the most pioneering and cutting edge digital work being created globally today. All will be presented in and around East England during the Future Physical programme (December 02 - April 03) or on the Future Physical Web Site.

If you are an artist interested in body and technology, register with Future Physical to receive
information on the further 5 commissions to be advertised.

The Future Physical programme features five commissioned performance pieces. Taking place in East England between December 2002 and April 2003, they vary from a site-specific piece using wearable computing to interact between an interior space and the surrounding area to a performance in which the audience, via text-messaging, gains control over dancers’ bodies. Bringing together cutting-edge technology and virtuoso performers, Future Physical performances will offer audiences pioneering new experiences. more>>
