Px - Digital Performance Lab

Explore, Design & Share: A DIGITAL experience for young and emerging artists 

 

Px is an original digital performance project for young creatives (16-24yrs) directed by Man Made Youth Company​ and led by two exciting artists, Digital Media Barret Hodgson & Interactive Designer Noel Murphy.

A unique experience to play, learn, question, develop and collaborate in an innovative environment, The Creative Lab will explore the concept of physical reality & virtual world in live performance making.

Px is free of charge and is presented as part of the Future C U R I O U S season at mac birmingham (31st July – 20th September) which encourages young and emerging artists to explore future arts practice. http://www.future-curious.com

Participants will learn & develop ways of approaching new technologies (digital projection) whilst collaborating creatively with Man Made Youth Company Artistic Directors Jerrel Jackson & Johnny Autin. The findings of the research & extensive documentation of the process will be shared in an evening presentation at mac birmingham & on digital online platforms.

 

 

About Man Made

Man Made Youth Company is Birmingham's first independent all-male youth company formed last year. It is an initiative co-directed by Jerrel Jackson & Johnny Autin, supported by mac birmingham and DanceXchange.   Man Made aims to inspire and empower young men from across the Midlands through high quality dance training, choreography workshops and performance opportunities. Man Made’s objectives are to enhance male arts provision in the Midlands to cultivate and showcase creative potential.​   This R&D project will provide a playground of opportunities for YP interested in either live performance, music, movement &/or technology, and who are at various stages of their creative development (from first time arts appreciator to experienced arts creator), Px will develop their creativity & explore the connections between the virtual & the real world in live performance.   The whole project is geared towards artistic & participant development. It will build upon MMYC’s portfolio of work from an young emerging youth company to a company that can provide innovative learning programmes which showcase local youth talent, and educate new arts enthusiasts.
