An audio-visual live show made in collaboration with digital video artists Louis Mustill and Will Young. Resynthesising the Welsh landscape, this performance emphasises the remoteness and extreme beauty in the natural and the industrial through technology and art.
Sun 24 March, 8pm | Quays Theatre
Fresh from her success at the BBC Proms performance and British Composer Innovation award, Shiva performs her experimental fusion of sonic sampling, club, dance and classical sound alongside stunning visuals. A mesmerising sound performance not to be missed.
Digital Art is at the edges of where creativity meets technology – from performance to visual art. The integration of digital art within our artistic programme is an acknowledgement of world-class digital artists taking their place in our artistic vision.
The Lowry sits at the heart of Salford Quays, the home of MediaCityUK, and our programme of art reflects the diverse and world-class digital creativity of ideas that emanates from this location.
What is Digital Art?
Digital art grew out of artists experimenting with different art forms such as photography, film, lighting, sound, projection, online media and now into digital technology.
It can best be summarised as: an artwork where digital technology is an integral part of the making or showing of that artwork – it would not be the same artwork if you removed the digital element.
We want everyone try something new, and then try it again! Our digital programme is as varied as it is future-facing – you are guaranteed to experience something new every time.
What to expect
- Live performances using a mix of sound and visuals
- Fusions of dance and movement using technology
- Visual art exhibitions and large-scale outdoor installations
- New commissions and presentations across the galleries, theatres and public spaces
We are also home to the Quays Culture, a digital art programme for Salford Quays and MediaCityUK’s outdoor public spaces that presents an artistic programme of ambitious new art.
