Take part in Dial Ulrike And Eamon Compliant and enter a world of bombings and kidnappings in this tense mobile phone project about political violence. Choose whether to be Eamon or Ulrike as you move through the centre of Dublin. Use your keypad to make decisions and as the world spins out of control, you too must make a choice.

On the 25th April, Ju Row Farr will lead a day long workshop – Asymmetrical Participation + Digital Collaborations. This hands on workshop will give an insight into creating strategies for engaging in dialogues through technology. Over the course of the day, participants will learn creative strategies for challenging/complex projects using conversations, questions and asymmetrical participation. How do you create meaningful dialogues from one person to many? How can conversations, which are automated, be designed to feel personal and as real as possible? And how can questions or questionnaires be used to build the arc of a work?
Using case studies from Blast Theory projects for video streaming, SMS and urban games, the workshop is suitable for all types of creative students from theatre, media studies and visual art, through to architecture and game design.
Live Collision International Festival is an international producing template redefining the ways that artists create, engage & collide through live performance & digital platforms.
