These awards, given by Direcció de Creativitat i Innovació, promote research and experimenting new formats and creative contents.
The shows ‘Compra’m’ by Insectronics and ‘Croma’ by HandMadeDance and Pelayo Méndez have won the contest Future Internet - Performing Arts among the ten which took part in the event. Direcció de Creativitat i Innovació de l’institut de Cultura de Barcelona
intends this contest to offer the chance to creatives and artists to get involved in the creation of experimental projects, under the term ‘distributed creation‘; which is the one performed simultaneously on different locations interacting among each other in real time.
According to Direcció de Creativitat i Innovació, the new technologies on the future Internet ‘offer new innovation opportunities to the cultural and creative industries’. Through these awards and thanks to these technologies, they wish to boost investigation and experimenting with new formats and creative contents. The awarded excelled in using technologies and broadband internet, balancing this innovation with the aesthetic and artistic value in the projects. Moreover, they are collaborative projects and have a high degree of export as well as originality in the use of visualization sstems and video connection.
One of the awarded, ‘Compra’m’, will be the new show by Insectotròpics and will be performed at the forthcoming Fira de Tàrrega in September. This new production reflects on happiness, on the distance built when finding yourself. A fascinating inward journey, although maybe also horrific. On the other hand, the other awarded creation ‘Croma’ by HandMadeDance and Pelayo Méndez, intends to build a large pixel screen where a mix of actual live stages and stages broadcasted from anywhere in the world creates an homogenous and interactive picture.
FI - Performing Arts awards consist of 20,000€ each and offer the chance of a public premiere of the project with an assessment process to access the co-producing plan for GREC 2016.
