London Sinfonietta’s CoCurate
The CoCurate project sought to establish a digital platform over which audiences could become part of the creative process. Once the system of engagement had been established London Sinfonietta looked to test with the creation of a newly co-created performance as part of their 2014/15 season.
Working with Frank Millward from Kingston University London the project built and tested a new digital platform, which looked to facilitate interactions between audience and performer in a variety of mediums, including video, poetry, audio and photography.
With an early version of the system established the collaboration moved on to launching a pilot project, ‘Beauty in Imperfection’, by composer Samantha Fernando. A launch event was hosted at the Stanley Picker Gallery and over one thousand contacts were emailed inviting them to submit responses to the platform.
Over 30 submissions contributed to the development of the new performance piece which was showcased at The Asylum in Peckham on the 22nd of June 2014. The piece was performed by Oliver Coates and a short video was made documenting the process.
