Hear Sarah Ellis, Director of Digital Development at the RSC, reflect on how projects like this are challenging and changing performance.

Also talking – and bringing kit to play with – is the relentlessly creative choreographer Laura Kriefman, whose company, Guerilla Dance Project, create performances that blend with technology to spectacular effect in disused dockyards, abandoned Indonesian forts and Brazilian streets.

Finally, an informal debate hosted by Katy Beale looks at how partnerships and collaborations inspire and resource other work across the ecosystem, asking – what is the best way to support artists as agents of innovation?
