XR creators panel at VR Days with Boris Debackere

V2_'s Boris Debackere is one of the panelists on the XR creators panel: Performing Arts Symposium at the VRdays in Rotterdam.

The XR creators panel Performing Arts Symposium takes place at the Eduard Flipse Zaal on Friday 2nd December from 16:00–17:00h. The panelists are, next to V2_'s Boris Debackere, Baboo Liao, Celine Daamen, and Vanessa Hannesschläger.

Here's the text from the program:

'Designing time-based XR experiences for one or more participants involves know-how from many fields of expertise, from media, games, and the performing arts. An XR artist needs strategies to create and test interactive narratives and reactive 3D environments while dealing with cutting-edge technologies in constant development resulting in all sorts of instabilities. As such, this new field poses novel artistic challenges, asks for adapted workflows and possibly new interdisciplinary vocabulary. Meanwhile, traditional cultural organizations, podia, and funding programs, especially in the performing arts, are often unable to facilitate such productions, as well as understand why these are often more expensive to produce and show.

What skills does the XR experience designer need to explore the artistic potential of XR? Which disciplinary know-how is essential, and how do you collaborate? And how exciting the metaverse is in the context of the performing arts?

In this third and final session of the Performing Arts Symposium trilogy, an inspiring panel of interdisciplinary artist show and discuss their XR projects.'

Panelists: Baboo Liao, Celine Daamen, Boris Debackere and Vanessa Hannesschläger. Hosted by Joris Weijdom, head of the AXRLAb at the HKU University of the Arts Utrecht.

The event is part of Immersive Tech Week, 'a unique festival where creativity, innovation, business, research and art meet to explore the impact of immersive technologies on our planet, culture, and society. A five day adventure filled with experiences, talks, round tables, workshops and more. Where industry leaders, XR enthusiasts, academics, start-ups, scale-ups and policy makers from all over the world unite to get inspired, share knowledge, find new opportunities and make connections.'
