Not satisfied with just small scale in-person and online options, Festival Director Jo Mangan approached Artist/Designer/Coder Ciara del Grosso to imagine the festival in the virtual world. The result is epic. You imagine it, and it can happen. Want to fly high above the site and get a birds eye view? You can. Want your avatar to dance beside others in close proximity while shouting in each other’s ear over the music? You can.
The festival campus is situated in an imaginary version of the usual festival site at Carlow College between VISUAL and the Cathedral and also features the interior of the former Braun site. Digital art, film and sound projects that are part of both www.WomanintheMachine.com and the broader festival offering are available to view/experience in the virtual festival campus. Film content from our Latin American Dance programme will be streamed here, and a meditation walk-in sphere can help take you away from it all when the time comes.
Join us for a walkthrough/tour, curated talks and meet and greet opportunities throughout the festival beginning with a guided tour on Thursday 3rd June – details below.
Content of curated talks with all our avatars will be broadcast via the festival website.
