    Salon type conference in association with Vivid Projects

    In 1966, Billy Klüver of Bell Laboratories initiated 9 Evenings: Theatre & Engineering, a project which brought together ten New York artists and thirty engineers and scientists to collaborate on a series of innovative dance, music and theatre performances which blended avant-garde theatre, dance and new technologies. 9 Evenings became seminal – the event leading to the influential project E.A.T. or Experiments in Art and Technology.

    For 9 Evenings: Redux, Vivid Projects has commissioned a group of artists to collaborate, critique, re-work and react to this seminal programme. The programme combines new collaborative commissions with documentation of three key performances from the original 9 Evenings series. The groundbreaking inter-disciplinary collaborations seen in the work of John Cage, Robert Rauschenberg and Yvonne Rainer are precursors of the creative collaborations between disciplines that now underpin digital culture.
