Dance and digital technology

Unwired Dance Theatre

Unwired Dance Theatre makes immersive and playable experiences – for remote audiences, IRL and virtual stages, galleries and more unconventional sites. Our work questions our sense of empathy, especially when mediated through technology, and often explores what remote connection could look like.

From networked wearables to XR, we like to work at the intersection of dance and technology to create unique and thought-provoking experiences, with meaningful audience participation at its core.

“What’s the future of digital performance?”

by IJAD Dance Company

IJAD Dance Company,

IJAD is leading the exploration of movement, science and technology. Through engagement and research, we collaborate with communities and create opportunities for all. IJAD has been working with science and technology events since commissioned by the Science Museum to create a performance for Lates in 2013. We use dance and digital technology to explore the big scientific themes such as space and gravity and their impact upon human health and wellbeing. Our work has been shown at FACT, Manchester Science Festival and at venues around the UK and beyond. Over the past four years we have engaged with over 1,600 workshop participants, 52 artists and 15,300+ audience members (both live and virtual), across 34 countries.
