The Festival of Live Digital Art- FOLDA- presents SmartSmart by Adrienne Wong

Power Corporation of Canada Studio Theatre
FOLDA Festival of Live Digital Art

Take your phone to the theatre! Bring the family and join Adrienne Wong for crafts, storytelling, and surprises. Leave your phone on.

 SmartSmart combines audience participation and a modular script where the storytelling is predetermined, but the order is improvised based on you, the audience. The experience is a meditation on mediation. 

Smartphones are one of many ‘modifications’ humans make to themselves in the name of advancement. Early cybernetic devices have ranged from contact lenses to cochlear implants. Now haptics on our phones remind us to drink water, notifications urge us to get enough sleep, and our senses are extended by a web of computers accessible from the pocket-sized terminals we tuck under our pillows at night. This is a new work that explores pervasive media and our relationships to our devices, how they extend our senses, and affect our relationships with other humans and ourselves. 

Saturday's performance will be a relaxed performance, with ASL interpretation, and suitable for ALL AGES! 

Get access to two FOLDA presentations with one ticket!

 For the hour before or the hour after SmartSmart, use your ticket to gain access to LUCY AI by bluemouth inc and Reimagine AI, an exhibition that tells the story of artist Lucy’s life through a collage of film, music, and movement powered by artificial intelligence.
