Dear all
This is a reminder for our Digital Performance Weekender: Data Bodies, which is taking place at Watermans on Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 November. 

The Digital Performance Weekender is an annual festival at Watermans inviting artists and researchers to share work, take part in discussions and explore directions, intersections and collaborations in performance, dance, sound, technology and more. This year's edition will include performances, installations, participatory events as well as a symposium and workshops. 
Event highlights include Alexander Whitley's visually striking and kinetically charged choreography The Measures Taken, made in collaboration with digital arts studio Marshmallow Laser Feast; Anna Dumitriu's new work Sequence that fuses leading edge digital technology with bacterial bioart, traditional media and altered historical artefacts to artistically investigate the emerging technology of whole genome sequencing of bacteria and consider what it means to us personally, culturally and socially; You are my data symposium instigating public debate around issues of privacy in relation to big data; and many more.
