TRiPL (Technological Research in Performance Lab)

Projects developed within the Technological Research in Performance Lab aim to expand performance beyond a human-centred medium and challenge what constitutes as performance in an ever changing technological ecosystem. Our goal is to explore how audience-performer relationships change and differ with the integration of emerging technologies: including show control, non-humanoid robot performers and AI. We examine how they can further develop and explore reciprocal human-robot empathy and enhance audience experiences in a vast variety of performance spaces. 

TRiPL is housed at The Catalyst at The Creative School. (opens in new window)
