glitching is a digital dance performance led by artist Beverley Hood, performed by Tony Mills, Hannah Seignior and Felicity Beveridge, with a soundtrack composed by Martin Parker. The performance is inspired by the glitches and malfunctions of characters in sports and action computer games. After the performance the audience will be invited to step into the digital shoes of the dancers and follow the movements of the on-screen dance troupe.

The project is funded by an Artist Commission from the Scotland and Medicine Partnership for the Human Race exhibition. Additional funding has been provided by Creative Scotland and Edinburgh College of Art.

It’s been a busy few weeks for the glitching project. I was a speaker at the 2nd International Conference  Transdisciplinary Imaging at the Intersection between Art, Science and Culture, at the Victoria College of the Arts, Melbourne in June. You can find a streaming video of my presentation here. It included keynotes speakers Oliver Grau and Anna Munster, who both gave fascinating presentations.

The “Human Race: inside the science of sports medicine” exhibition, which features (and commissioned) the glitching installation has just opened at the City Art Centre, Edinburgh. It’ll be there until Sept 9th 2012 and the next glitching performance is at Inspace, 1 Crichton Street, University of Edinburgh on Sept 7th, 7.30 for an 8.00pm start. Hope to see you there!
