What happens when a computer has creative control of six dancers?

Welcome to Forgery

The theatre darkens and the lights come up on a performance that is completely unknown - for not just the audience, but the dancers too.

Welcome to Forgery, where a complex series of algorithms and cutting-edge technology dictate each performance - a show that’s directed entirely by computer and is different every single performance.

Developed by award-winning Australian dancer, sound designer, choreographer and creative coder, Alisdair Macindoe, the six renowned Australasian Dance Collective dancers will be fed instructions live on stage. From opening night to closing, every show willbe completely unique.

With the program’s algorithms also in charge of lighting, costumes and music, ADC courageously embraces this bespoke technology to pose questions about creative agency in the digital age.
