Official launch of The Centre for Research in Digital Storymaking

London South Bank University’s Centre for Research in Digital Storymaking announced an exciting partnership with V&A Digital Programmes in January 2018.

The inaugural event in the partnership series took place on Friday 19 January 2018 at The Sackler Centre. The CRDS and V&A Digital Programmes presented interactive version of the performance Kjell Theøry by Chicago based ATOM-r collective (Anatomical Theatres of Mixed Reality). ATOM-r is a provisional collective, exploring forensics, anatomy, and 21st century embodiment through performance, language, and emerging technologies.

On the evening, the performance was contextualised by insights from academics Dr Stephen Farrier and Professor Rosemary Klich, whose research explores multimedia performance and queerness. Audiences also had an opportunity to hear Mark Jeffery and Judd Morissey from ATOM-r talk about their work and process.
