World Premiere > Hybrid Theatre: Data Jamming
Presented in partnership with Feedback Loop

by Feedback Loop

Information is power.

As the distribution of information, freedom of communication and the accessibility of technology expands into the hands of ordinary citizens around the globe, Democracy explores and demonstrates the consequences of this rapid manifestation of information technology.

Politics, economics, communication and culture are examined within this genre expanding sound and motion production.

Feedback Loop takes control of real-time information, open-source software, raw data and consumer technologies to explore the changing forms of democracy.

One moment the audience is privy to the whims of the stock market expressed through reactive architectural lighting – the next, they will sink lucidly into a sea of deep affected electronica.

By exposing the powerful reality of people's ability to access, utilize and distribute, Democracy invites the audience into the reality of our future – today.

Feedback Loop are pioneers in this relatively new hybrid theatre genre called data jamming, which involves data sampling and re-contextualising information from "the cloud" and filtering it through into the lens of technology.
