As guest artists at Falmouth University’s ‘Games as Arts / Arts as Games’ festival 2018, Blast Theory will be presenting Fixing Point in its first outing since 2013’s Brighton Festival.
Pick up a smartphone, put on your headphones and start to explore. As you walk you hear a stunning score by electronic musician Clark. Find one of the fixing points and hear a fragment of an interview with Anne as she talks about her missing brother. Fixing Point traces the legacy of the conflict in Northern Ireland. What lies hidden and where are we silent?
Organised by The MetaMakers Institute of Falmouth University, Games as Arts / Arts as Games will investigate relationships between games, performance and AI, through shared notions of play. The second of it’s kind, this year’s festival will run from 10-31 May at the Exchange Gallery in Penzance, and from 7-15 June at the Academy of Music and Theatre Arts on their Penryn campus.
To take part, head along to the Academy of Music and Theatre Arts (AMATA) on Falmouth University’s Penryn Campus on 8th or 9th June.
