Single Thread Theatre Company (Kingston) and Electric Company Theatre (Vancouver) present the Performance and XR Conference 2021 (PXR2021). Now in its second year, PXR is a series of interactive presentations and discussions by Canadian artists and digital content creators on how they are using virtual, augmented, and mixed reality (collectively known as XR) in the creation of live performance.
This year the Conference will be held from November 13th to the 20th. PXR will renew its commitment to IBPOC (Indigenous, Black, People of Colour) artists, expanding upon the initial fellowship offered in 2020. This year the IBPOC Fellowship will include a free Oculus Quest headset, an honorarium, mentorship and project development, and full access to the PXR Conference.
Independent Artsworker and Student rate is $50, and the IBPOC Fellowship Registration Deadline is October 15th!
