Still time to register for Network Performing Arts Production workshop
 

There's still time to register for the Network Performing Arts Production (NPAP) workshop that will be held on 4-6 May 2015 in London, UK. The use of the latest networking technology in combination with performing arts will be demonstrated and explained, and an evening performance by students at the Royal College of Music is included free of charge for workshop participants.

You can register for the workshop until midnight CEST Monday 27 April 2015.

Programme

The workshop programme and session descriptions have been updated, including additional sessions where the latest networking technology will be shown and explained in combination with live performing artists. In addition to live demonstrations, the workshop participants will be invited to participate in hands-on sessions with what will be the largest collection of specialist arts and music streaming technologies ever assembled. On top of all this, round-table discussions with experts of various fields will take place.

The workshop will build upon the basic knowledge and skills of people who have already participated in one or more of the previous workshops in the series, or for people who have acquired knowledge by using the online learning materials.

Multimedia evening symphony

On 5 May, Royal College of Music students will perform a multimedia symphony titled ‘The Infinite Bridge’, using some of the technologies presented during the workshop. This innovative and cross-disciplinary event will use music, theatre, dance, computer-generated graphics and three live connections to tell the story of a girl trapped in a mundane existence, who in her dreams escapes into an alternate cyber-world.

Workshop participants can attend this performance free of charge. Tickets are also available to the public. More information can be found on the Royal College of Music events page.
